BKT doesn’t produce car tyres. Nor tyres for trucks or motorcycles. The company’s Research and Development Centre in India focuses solely on vehicles that operate off the highway, and constantly looks for new solutions by developing and fine-tuning tyre ranges and new tyre sizes for specialised applications.
The brand new Earthmax SR 31, which BKT says has “just rolled off the production line,” will be put on display for the first time at this year’s Bauma show in Munich, Germany. The all-steel radial features multi-ply steel belts, and BKT says this gives the tyre “extraordinary strength and stability under [the] toughest operating conditions.” Other qualities the manufacturer attributes to the Earthmax SR 31 are excellent traction and manoeuvrability, along with good ride comfort.
