Maxam introduces 63” mining tyre
Maxam Tire has expanded its portfolio for mining applications with the addition of the largest tyre it has ever made, the MS453 53/80R63 open pit mining radial.
In order to meet the requirements of vehicles that wear these supersized mining tyres, Maxam says it developed the MS453 with the goal of providing the “best-delivered value, greatest productivity and the lowest cost-per-ton value for global mining operations.”
Featuring a rugged and aggressive tread design that allows maximum tyre life for the most demanding mining applications, the MS453 is “built to withstand even most severe challenges on haul roads.” Drawing upon feedback from customers and mine sites globally, Maxam has reinforced the sidewall of the MS453 by enhancing the tread belts and bead construction to provide maximum protection and performance. Similar to the products within the large mining series, the MS453 features a deep tread depth to deliver longer tyre life. It also contains a heat resistant undertread for reduced heat built up, increasing the tyre’s TKPH/TMPH.
In addition, Maxam has implemented a new naming structure on some products within the Large Mining Series to help broaden its future range of specialty tyre programmes. The aim of the model number realignment is to allow for easy ordering and programme development as the company continues to expand its haulage programme.
The new product model names correlate to specific haulage tyre sizes to differentiate tread design patterns within the series. The previous MS403 in size 37.00R57 and 46/90R57 have been realigned as the MS440. All other sizes within the MS403 pattern remain the same.
