How to choose OTR Tyre?
Whether to go radial OTR tyres or bias tyres on your site – or both – is an important question affecting your tyre operating costs.
For instance, construction, earthmoving, and grading applications that put on relatively high mileage are seeing the benefits of radial tyres because they last longer, reduce fuel consumption, and increase the transfer of horsepower to the ground.
What is Radial OTR Tyre?
Radial OTR tyres are constructed with steel belts to protect the tread area. Radial tyres offer enhanced load-carrying capacity and generate less heat when hauling at higher speeds and longer distances. Radial tyres were developed in 1946. There was a need for more flexible tyres, which could absorb shocks generated by road surfaces. These tyres are also more robust, which means they can operate machines at higher capacities. In radial tyres, steel cord plies are placed on the heel of the tyre, and a belt is placed across the casing. Because cord plies are placed directly on top of each other, the sidewalls of radial tyres remain very flexible. Lower fuel consumption. Higher resistance against tread-related damage
What is Bias OTR Tyre?
A radial OTR tire isn’t always the best solution for every job requirement. Bias tires are better suited for job sites with stationary work and less travel.
