Michelin issue statement on crane tyre capacity

MICHELIN have issued a clarification statement relating to the operation of their 445/95 R 25 X Crane 174F tyre.

The statement, which relates specifically to the use of this particular tyre on category C heavy cranes and/or cranes registered as engineering plant, says: ‘Michelin do not support the use of their 445/95 R 25 X Crane 174F tyre above the axle weight of 15,600kg because in certain circumstances irreparable internal damage may be caused to the tyres if run in this condition.’

The company says the statement supersedes any previous communication on this subject.

Michelin are advising operators or tyre dealers to contact them as soon as possible if they: have used Michelin 445/95 R 25 X Crane 174F tyres at axle weights above 15,600kg; or have sold Michelin 445/95 R 25 X Crane 174F tyres to anyone they believe may have used or may use them at axle weights of above 15,600kg.
