It is ideal for wide-body mining trucks and can easily handle heavy loads.

Armed with a strong R&D, BKT exhibited some of its best products for the construction and mining industry, namely – the XL GRIP ULTRA, designed specifically for Tippers in the mining & construction sector, because of its non-directional tread design that provides excellent front and lateral traction and the special tread compound to ensure high cut and puncture resistance as well as excellent durability and wear resistance, even on rocky surfaces.

The all-steel radial tire delivers exceptional traction during high-speed operation in on and off-road conditions. It provides greater steerability due to its five-rib tread pattern and the special tread compound along with the strong steel belt package provides resistance to wear, cuts, and punctures.

The EARTHMAX SR 31, an all-steel radial tire with non-directional block patterns treads, is specifically developed for wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks. Made of a special compound, it is extremely resistant to cuts and abrasion and also dissipates the heat developed during equipment operation. The tire has a robust carcass with multiple steel belts, which provides excellent strength and stability. It thus offers optimum traction and a pleasing riding comfort. Designed for load haul and load & carry operations, the EARTHMAX SR 31 is best suited in the mining & industrial sectors.
