Catering to the diverse requirements of industrial and mining sectors, the company offers a comprehensive range of robust products. It is also a leader in the ultra-large OTR tyre category, having developed India’s largest tyre 40.00-57, 12 ft in diameter, weighing approximately 3400 kgs. It has also achieved a remarkable feat by entering the prestigious Limca Book of Records for the largest off-the-road tyre — the VEM 045 measuring 12 feet in height and weighing approx 3.4 tons.
Anuj Kathuria, President (India), JK Tyre & Industries, said, “JK Tyre has been at the helm of introducing several cutting-edge and technologically advanced products. Our strong position in the Off-the-Road tyre segment resonates with our commitment to make products that maximize performance and durability even on the most challenging Indian terrains. Our three new tyres are ‘category defining’ breakthrough products which will further strengthen our position in the OTR tyre market.”
The 26.5-25 Loader Champ 28PR E4/L4 TL is a premium heavy-duty tyre designed for wheel loaders and articulated dumpers. This high depth tyre has a specially engineered tread pattern to offer great traction, mileage, and cut resistance under arduous mining operating conditions.
Along with this tyre, the two new variants for skid steer loaders viz. 23X8.50-12 JET TRAX ULTIMA and 23X5.7-12 JET TRAX SUPER II are targeted for international markets. The tyres are designed for material handling equipment and other type of construction equipment for Non-Highway Services (NHS). The silica-based tread compound in the tyres provides better resistance to wear and tear. The tyres also feature a robust wide wall and rim guard design for additional resistance to external damages and greater protection against wheel damage in the rim flange area.
