- Increased mileage for site deliveries with the new MICHELIN X® WORKS™ tires.
- Productivity and ruggedness on construction sites with the MICHELIN X® WORKS™ HD (Heavy Duty) tires.
- Ruggedness and traction on rough surfaces, such as quarries, with the new version of the MICHELIN X® FORCE™ tire.

2 to 3%
The European construction market is growing at between 2 and 3% per annum. Six European countries are particularly dynamic: France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom. These countries alone represent 75% of European growth. This growing market means an increased demand for tires. This makes the solutions offered by the new MICHELIN X® WORKS™ range even more relevant.
The two main sizes (315/80 R 22.5 Z and D, and 385/65 R 22.5 T and Z) represent 50% of the European market in the construction tire sector.
