Titan introduces new radial OTR tires for Loaders
| March 29, 2011 |
Titan Tire Corp. has introduced new key sizes to its radial OTR tire lineup — the Titan LDR 250 and the Titan MXL.
The loader tires are available in both radial and bias designs, with a variety of compounds, sizes and tread depths.
Titan LDR 250
With an L5 tread design, the LDR 250 is ideal for large loaders in the harshest of pit and quarry settings where tread life and rock damage are major concerns. The LDR 250 is available in three sizes — 35/65R33, 45/65R45, and 50/65R51. The open, non-directional tread pattern also provides all-around traction, excellent self-cleaning and resistance to rock cutting.
“The LD250 has been a proven performer in the Titan lineup for years,” said Hawkins, “Now customers will get the same proven performance they’ve come to expect from the LD250 but in a radial tire. The introduction of these three sizes will give our customers the option of selecting a radial or a bias design, whichever is optimal for their quarry.”
The MXL is built for use with both front-bucket loadYers and graders in light duty settings. Available in four sizes — 17.5R25, 20.5R25, 23.5R25 and 26.5R25 — the MXL’s aggressive tread design and sturdy tread elements provide good traction.
