Truck Tire Offers Improved Traction and Durability

Titan Tire’s new DTE4 radial haul truck tire has a deep lug tread pattern that provides durability, heat dissipation and traction in harsh mining conditions, according to the supplier, along with an open, non-direc- tional E-4 tread pattern for improved self cleaning capability. The open center tread design also reduces internal heat genera- tion and allows the heat to more easily dis- sipate, reducing tire fatigue and extending tire life. The new tire is available in four sizes—18.00R33, 24.00R35, 27.00R49 and 33.00R51—and a variety of com- pounds.
