      JK Tyres is the oldest Indian manufacturer of tyres with wide range of offerings from its stable. We manufacture tyres ranging from 16 to 57 inches. The ability to manufacture wide range of solutions is based on the prolonged expertise of the company in tyres business.

      Further, we have solutions for Port & Terminals; tipper trucks are also a segment where we are making a considerable presence. We have sufficient presence in the domestic market, but now we are planning to expand our footprint in the export market in order to hedge the volatility in the domestic market.
    • Expertise behind producing varied solutions for the mining and construction industry:

      As stated, JK Tyres has gained the required expertise owing to its extended exposure in tyre production. Many of the present day manufacturers in the domestic sector are deficient in the same. Having enjoyed long presence in manufacturing and marketing, we are well acquainted with the application orientation of tyres. Accordingly, we are formulating to suit the varied requirements in construction and mining applications. These tread-compounds have been created after extensive research and controlled monitoring of product performance in field in varying underfoot conditions.
