DANVERS, Mass. — Maxam Tire North America Inc. is adding a 63-inch open-pit mining tire, the MS403 59/80R63, to its large mining series.
The tire, the largest in Maxam's portfolio, features an aggressive tread pattern that increases shoulder lug stability and reduces irregular wear on the tread. Maxam said it optimized the bead construction and casing, enabling greater load capacity and ground contact.
The MS403 features a deep tread depth for boosted tire life and contains a heat-resistant undertread for reduced internal heat buildup, increasing the tire's tons/mph load-carrying capacity. It also features a two-stage lug to improve self-cleaning capability.
"In the demanding mining global market, the addition of the 59/80R63 size further enhances our flagship mining product line, delivering a comprehensive line of viable solutions to mining applications globally in every size," Matt Johnson, vice president, Maxam Mining Group, said.
"With only a few manufacturers capable of producing the largest and most aggressive 63-inch large tires, this showcases Maxam's commitment to play an integral part in the mining industry's operation and future. We are confident that the largest open pit mining tires will perform on par with other tier-one tires with a more competitive price and value."
Pricing information was not disclosed.
This in the second 63-inch mining tire Maxam has launched. Earlier it debuted the MS S453 in size 53/80R63 for open-pit mining equipment.
Danvers-based Maxam Tire is a subsidiary of China's Sailun Tire Group.
