Multi-segment Chinese tyre manufacturer Triangle Tyre is closing in on a top 20 position in Tyres & Accessories’ chart of the sector’s leading companies, but the brand has a particularly strong presence in the OTR tyre segment, in which Triangle claims a rank of fourth.

Triangle will exhibit its latest OTR products at the Buxton quarry from stand E23.
