The BKT USA showcased its latest tires from the Earthmax and ATV/UTV tire line-ups during CONEXPO.

The 750/65R25 Earthmax SR 35, is BKT’s first tire in the 65 series, while the Earthmax SR 35 is a low-profile, all steel radial tire that is designed for articulated dump trucks and loaders. The SR 35 also features a cut resistant compound for maximum service life even under severe conditions, BKT said.

The Earthmax line celebrates its 10th anniversary this June.

For the ATV/UTV segment, BKT showcased three tires that are in production: the W207, Bogomax and Sierramax. The Sierramax tire was designed with the Yamaha YXZ1000R in mind. These tires feature a tread design for superior traction in a wide array of soil conditions and offer grip in desert, dirt and rocky terrains, BKT said.

BKT booth visitors could view a wrapped Yamaha at the BKT booth with Sierramax tires.

BKT also featured its iconic Grave Digger Monster Jam truck at its booth and driver Adam Anderson signed autographs. This year is the 35th anniversary of Grave Digger and BKT’s partnership.
