Whether to go OTR radial or bias tires on your site – or both – is an important question that can certainly affect your tire operating costs.
For instance, construction, earth moving and grading applications that put on relatively high mileage are seeing the benefits of radial tires because they last longer, reduce fuel consumption, and increase the transfer of horsepower to the ground.
Radial OTR Tires
Constructed with steel belts to protect the tread area, radials offer enhanced load-carrying capacity and generate less heat when hauling at higher speeds and longer distances.
Triangle, a leading manufacturer in the OTR tire segment, has numerous radial options in the U.S.:
The TB598 is available in the 875/65R29 size which was created for some of the higher load capacity articulated haul trucks. Michelin and Bridgestone became the OE suppliers, but Triangle was one of the first aftermarket manufacturers to develop this size in an effort to provide a viable alternative in terms of tire operating costs.
This E-3/L-3 tire is a top performer at construction, aggregate and mining sites throughout the US with a self-cleaning tread pattern for excellent traction and rugged shoulder design for sidewall protection.
Bias OTR Tires
A radial OTR tire isn’t always the best solution for every job requirement. Bias tires are a better fit for job sites with more stationary work and less travel.
Here are some of the Triangle OTR bias tire standouts:
