Titan 63-inch Radial Gets OK
Titan Tire has released its new 63-inch steel-belted radial OTR tyre to full production at its Bryan, Ohio, plant. The 59/80R63 radials will begin full production as of July 7.
“We believe this is the beginning of a change in the specialty tyre and wheel business worldwide,” said Titan Chairman and CEO Morry Taylor. “This tyre should out-perform any tyre out there and we think as production moves forward, we should continue to find more ways to improve these giant tyres.
“The first 12 sets of tyres should be shipped to Canada’s tar sands in July. It is Titan’s goal to ship a minimum of 900 giant 63-inch tyres before year-end.” (Tire Review/Akron)
