Long-haul and regional truckers that use the Michelin XZA3 truck tire can now increase safety on the highway using the Antisplash deflector on both of the tire's sidewalls. The new Michelin XZA3 Antisplash tire helps make highways safer by reducing the splash trajectory of water spraying from the tires by more than 50 percent compared with standard truck tires. Lower splash trajectory means less water on windshields, improving overall visibility in heavy rain for oncoming and overtaking motorists, as well as truck drivers.
The Antisplash feature was first introduced in November 2006 on the XZA2 Antisplash tire. Unlike the XZA2 Antisplash tire, which had the feature on only one side, the new tire features the Antisplash deflector on both of the tire's sidewalls. The new tire is directional to half life, allowing for tire rotation later in life. The XZA3 Antisplash tire is available in the popular 275/80R22.5 LRH size.
