According to BKT representatives, the Liftmax LM 63 features: “low rolling resistance, reduced vibrations, excellent stability and also a more comfortable drive.” These features have reportedly been made possible by the tyres new “all steel casing equipped with multilayer steel belts”.
The tyre’s features also include “good resistance to punctures and wear and tear and a high level of productivity thanks to the improved mileage and the reduced fuel consumption”. However, there is certainly no lack of traction, an essential element in numerous applications, but especially in industrial, logistical or port work.
