JK Tyre, India's premier tyre manufacturer, launched eleven new Off-the-Road (OTR) tyres, comprising the all-new JK Tyre 18.00–25 40PR Port Champion Plus and ten new variants for diverse applications in the construction segment. These included the 17.5-25 20PR GTL Plus E3/L3 and 13.00-24 16PR GTL Champ G3. The tyres, with high traction, are designed to support motor grader operations with their durability on the harshest terrains. The Hard Rock Champion series’ new addition – the 12.00-20 20PR E4 - has a high tread depth, suitable for mining tipper trucks working in rough terrains. The next-gen Port Champion Plus Tyre is designed specifically for Reach Stackers (container handling equipment). According to the company, the tyre provides excellent durability, mileage, and steering ability owing to its deep tread and accurate pattern with heavy rubber in the centre.
