Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) has revealed its biggest ever radial tyre, Earthmax SR-468, for off road equipment for monster trucks. According to the specialist tyre manufacturer, the Earthmax SR-468 was scheduled for launch prior to the COVID-19 pandemic; it will now be subject to rigorous testing until the spring of 2021, to ensure quality and reliability.
The Earthmax SR-468 tyre is equipped with an all-steel structure for a tyre casing that has greater resistance against damage; while its special tread design and tyre compound is constructed to limit heat generated. The 40.00 R-57 size and E-4 depth of the tread provides extreme resistance in highly challenging conditions.
Dilip Vaidya, President and Director of Technology at BKT, said, “It is a very important moment: a giant product has been created, which will now be subject to the most rigorous testing until we are sure we have achieved the highest possible level of quality and reliability, as always.
“Only when we are absolutely sure we can offer our users the best Earthmax SR-468 possible, will we officially launch the new 57-inch giant.”
