Triangle is Major Global Supplier to Heavy Equipment Manufacturers

Gaining original equipment (OE) fitments is the “proof in the pudding” for tire quality because original equipment manufacturers have such exacting standards for quality and technology.

Triangle, the world’s fourth largest OTR tire manufacturer, has long standing relationships with many major heavy equipment manufacturers, including Caterpillar, Doosan, Hyundai, Komatsu and Hitachi. The tire company is, in fact, a top 3 supplier to Caterpillar worldwide.

Through its commitment to tire quality, timely delivery and technical service/support, Triangle has received numerous supplier awards, including 12 straight years from Caterpillar.

Jamie LaRoche, owner of Twin Valley Tire (a major commercial tire dealer in the Midwest) says his sales team gets the customer’s attention when they mention that Triangle is a major OEM supplier. The durability of Triangle OTR radial and bias tires on construction, public works and mining sites keeps their attention.

“They are just really, really good tires,” he says. “They run well. No rapid wear. Great performance all around.”

The most popular Triangle OTR radial tread patterns for heavy equipment manufacturers include:

TB577A (E-4)
Next-generation tread pattern design delivers outstanding traction. Innovative cooling unit design in the tread reduces heat generation. High tensile steel cord application provides higher load capability. High square ratio footprint optimizes stress distribution.

TB516 (E-3/L-3)
Triangle’s most versatile OTR tread pattern, available in 6 sizes including 29.5R29. Wide aggressive tread design provides excellent handling, traction and lateral adhesion for loaders, dozers and other equipment. A robust shoulder and enhanced sidewall provide resistance to damage, and the tough casing construction enhances impact and cut resistance.

TL538S+ (L-5)
Excels in difficult operating conditions with an aggressive open tread pattern. A rugged shoulder design enhances stability and improves sidewall protection while uniform groove depth provides outstanding traction throughout the life of the tire. Available in 4 sizes from 20.5R25 to 29.5R25.
