India’s largest OTR tyre – JK Tyre enters the record book
JK Tyre & Industries has entered the Limca Book of Records – India’s answer to Guinness World Records – for having the country’s largest OTR tyre. This colossus is the VEM 045, a tyre that in size 40.00-57 stands 12 feet tall and weighs around 3.4 tons. JK Tyre introduced this specific tyre dimension as a fitment for India’s biggest rigid dump truck, a vehicle with a payload capacity of up to 240 tons.
Commenting on the tyre’s entry into the Limca Book of Records, Vikram Malhotra, marketing director at JK Tyre & Industries Ltd, said: “JK Tyre has been at the forefront of driving innovation in the Indian tyre industry, and recognition from the Limca Book of Records is clearly reflective of our unwavering efforts in that direction. The VEM 045 has been widely appreciated for its sturdiness and functionality over these years. We are thrilled and further encouraged to introduce more such category-defining products and solutions in the future.”
