Michelin Tweel Technologies plans to expand the reach of its airless skid-steer tires with the launch of a new size: the 10N16.5 X Tweel SSL All Terrain.

According to Michelin, the tire-wheel assembly offers a solution to the seemingly unavoidable challenge of chronic flat tires that plague skid-steer loaders. The new 10N16.5 product will be a viable option for those skid-steer machines that require the smaller 10-in. dimension.

“Responding to customer requests, we developed our newest version of the Michelin X Tweel SSL to give owners and operators of smaller skid-steer loader machines the opportunity to experience all of the advantages of the Tweel airless radial tire, including reduced downtime due to flats, increased operator comfort and improved productivity,” says Olivier Brauen, head of Michelin Tweel Technologies. “We are pleased to broaden our offer to provide this innovative mobility solution to more customers.”

The 10N16.5 has a 31/32-in. tread depth with a 10/32-in. undertread for ease of retreading. The 177-pound tire can support a 3,700-pound maximum load per tire.
