Yokohama OTR Radial Tires
September 5, 2012

Yokohama Tire Corporation’s  three new OTR (off-the-road) radial tires are:

— RB42™: Designed for dump trucks and soft and/or loose surfaces such as mud, sand, gravel and rocks. Features include an extra-deep tread for improved traction and tread life; large center blocks that increase resistance to cuts and improve overall wear; and a zig-zag groove pattern for better traction: Sizes: 18.00R33, 24.00R35, 27.00R49 (with cut protected compound) and 27.00R49 (with regular compound).

— RL45™: Made for articulated dump trucks, loaders and underground vehicles. Highlights: the deep tread offers longer wear while adding stability; the non-directional block pattern provides abrasion and cut resistance; and it has excellent traction, side-cut protection and improved ride comfort. Sizes: 26.5R25 E2 and 26.5R25 L1.

— RL51™: Grader tire for mining and construction that features side-cut protection and offers outstanding traction and a long tread life. Size: 23.5R25.
