FRANKLIN, Tenn. — Triangle Tire USA Inc. has added a radial OTR tire, the TB577A (E-4) in size 24.00R35, for rigid dump trucks.
According to Triangle, the tire's benefits include:
- An innovative tread pattern that delivers outstanding traction while also facilitating cooling for reduced heat generation;
- High tensile steel cord application for higher load capability; and
- High square ratio footprint for optimized stress distribution.
"The TB577A features an innovative tread design and is a great example of the company's continuing commitment to the research and development of OTR tires," Stephen Reynolds, OTR sales manager for Triangle Tire USA, said.
Triangle claims to be a top-three supplier to Caterpillar Inc. worldwide and supplies OTR tires globally to many other heavy equipment manufacturers, including Doosan Group, Hyundai Construction Equipment, Hitachi Construction Equipment Co. Ltd. and Komatsu Ltd.
"Professionals in the U.S. construction, aggregates and mining industries are often surprised to learn that Triangle is one of the world's leading OTR tire producers," Reynolds said. "Our reputation is growing here, however, based on the real-world performance of Triangle OTR radial and bias tires on job sites."
Triangle Tire USA is the wholly owned subsidiary of China's Triangle Tyre Co. Ltd.
