ANTWERP, Belgium — Vamas 2.0 B.V.'s Global OTR Library, an online reference for off-the-road tires, has added wheels and rims to its portfolio.
The free online library, a product of Vamas subsidiary 102psi, includes recent technical data books on its web platform for 48 OTR tire makers, including Group Michelin, Bridgestone Corp. and Goodyear as well as Balkrishna Industries Ltd. and Magna.
After registering on the site, www.TheGlobalOTRLibrary.com, access is free and allows for online consultation, printing and downloading of the documents.
Koen Vandermeersch, founder and owner of the Global OTR Library and independent OTR and industrial tires consultant for 102psi, said the company's aim is "to develop a worldwide independent information reference platform for the OTR tire industry, accessible to manufacturers, distributors, dealers, service providers and individual professionals of OTR tires."
He said adding wheels and rims to the library fulfills subscriber requests.
"Manufacturers and distributors are now called upon to submit wheels and rims documents for sharing through the platform," Mr. Vandermeersch said.
The Global OTR Library, established in 2019, said it has visitors from 58 countries and 1,400 document downloads since its inception.
