WAKEFIELD, Mass. (Jan. 22, 2017) — Alliance Tire Group (ATG) has added a skid-steer tire with a massive block tread pattern, the Galaxy Hulk Deep-Tread SDS, to its line of severe-duty solid (SDS) tires.
The Hulk Deep-Tread SDS is targeted at customers that operate in severe-duty situations, ATG said, such as waste-handling facilities, scrap-metal yards, steel mills, rock quarries, dairy farms and other sites where puncture and excessive wear are constant challenges.
The new tire, available in two sizes — 30x10-16 and 33x12-16 with and without apertures — complements the company's Beefy Baby and Yardmaster lines.
ATG claims the solid Hulk "virtually eliminates" downtime, increases load capacity and more than doubles tire life, according to Seth Walters, Manager-Special Product Programs for Alliance Tire Americas.
The tire's chevron-and-block pattern is designed to provide improved self-cleaning properties while delivering long service life on all surfaces with its high 68-percent rubber-to-void ratio, Mr. Walters said.
ATG is a subsidiary of Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd.
