GREENVILLE, S.C., Jan. 23, 2017 — Michelin Tweel Technologies has introduced its newest product, the MICHELIN® X® TWEEL® TURF airless radial tire for golf carts. The first-of-its-kind airless radial golf cart tire-wheel assembly replaces the standard 18X8.5N10 front and rear tire and wheel for golf carts.
This new four-bolt pattern version of the MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF is designed for gas- or electric-powered golf cart users. It provides an ideal solution for owners and operators who deal with expensive and inconvenient downtime associated with flat tires while using this vehicle in industrial, construction, utility or other rugged-surface conditions.
“This new product is in direct response to customer demand for TWEEL® airless radial tire performance in a golf cart application,” said Jack Olney, director of sales for Michelin Tweel Technologies. “And our direct, online ordering capability means factory-to-customer delivery makes this new technology even easier to obtain and bolt on.”
Because the X TWEEL TURF has no air, it cannot go flat and it eliminates the need to maintain air pressure. The TWEEL airless radial tire is constructed with high-strength poly-resin spokes that carry the load and create suspension-like characteristics for the golf cart. This structure absorbs impact and reduces bounce for improved operator comfort. It boasts a durable, multi-directional tread that provides long wear life and excellent traction. The X TWEEL TURF has a maximum speed of 25 mph and a maximum load of 705 pounds.
X TWEEL TURF airless radial tires can be ordered on-line by visiting michelintweel.com and clicking on “Buy Now.”
This MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF joins its caster and zero-turn mower siblings in the expanding TWEEL® TURF line. Michelin Tweel Technologies also offers the MICHELIN® X® TWEEL® SSL — available in two sizes for skid steer machines.
