COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) has released two skid-steer tires for the U.S. market, part of its flagship Globestar line: the Globestar Wide Tread (WT) and the Globestar XPT SS.
GRI said the Globestar WT was designed to support the demands of high load-carrying capacity, extend tire life and enhance stability. It provides increased traction and stability in a variety of surface conditions, GRI said.
The product's lug depth, lug gaps, circumferential lateral groves and other design features help the tire run with minimum noise and outstanding lateral guidance, according to the Sri Lankan specialty tire maker. The Globestar WT tread width provides higher contact area and lower tire distortion when maneuvering sharp corners, it said, allowing for a steadier ride.
The XPT SS is a pneumatic skid-steer tire developed for demanding use and engineered to provide the best in performance with outstanding machine stability. GRI said its extra deep directional tread and curved lugs provide traction and durability.
