Speke, U.K.-based wholesaler Kirkby Tyres has announced the latest additions to its earthmover tire range, including new, larger and more specialist sizes under the Alliance, Double Coin and BKT brands.
Alliance has released a new wide-based radial in the 650 design used on loaders/dozers and graders. It is available in sizes ranging from 20.5R25 to 26.5R25, inclusive.
Also in the Alliance range is the brand new 309 design port tire, available in either an E3 or L4s/L5s, and in sizes from 12.00-20.00 up to 18.00-25. Completing the additions to the range is the 630 high speed crane tire in size 16.00R25, which has a special rubber compound designed for low heat build-up and the ability for multi-retreading.
Double Coin is providing Kirkby with stock of two new 49- and 57-inch radials, which the wholesaler says are being tested and will be released later this year. They are both designed to go on rigid dumpers. The new sizes complement Double Coin’s existing extensive range of OTR tires from REM 10 (E3) 26.5 and 29.5R25 for articulated dumps and scrapers to the REM 2 (E3/L3) and REM 18 (L5) 35/65R33, which is used on loaders/dozers and graders. The REM 8 high-speed crane tire continues to be a big hit due to its durability and competitive pricing, states Kirkby.
BKT has launched its all steel radial OTR tires, sub-branded Earthmax. With this range, BKT becomes one of the first Indian companies to offer all steel radial OTR tires, according to the manufacturer. BKT has also launched other 25-inch rim diameter tires in multiple patterns and various compound options to cater for wide-ranging earthmoving applications and varied operating conditions. And 33- and 35-inch diameter radial OTR tires are also currently under development, reports Kirkby. BKT’s crossply E3/L3 Rock, E4 Rock, L4 and L5 smooth radial E3/L4 are also available through the wholesaler. (Tyres & Accessories)
