Maxam Tire North America is in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center this week to roll out its largest-ever mining tire, the 53/80R63 MS453.
The tire has been through extensive training at mine sites in Nevada and other global locations, exceeding expectations according to the manufacturer, and completes its series of rigid haul truck tires.
The MS453 features an aggressive, unique tread design and reinforced sidewall and has been produced with a two-stage method that involves improved placement of the belt and tread package on the casing.
VP Matt Johnson called the company’s commitment to the 63-inch “an integral part of the mining industry’s future” that underscores its dedication to the industry across the globe.
Maxam will also be displaying several mining support equipment tires including the MS405, recently OEM-approved by Cat. The tire has a E4/L4 lug pattern for grip, stability, and performance, and was designed to minimize vibration at higher cycle speeds to give loaders, graders and earthmovers the lowest cost-per-hour.
