Goodyear will unveil its latest ultra-large haul truck mining tyre, the RM-4B+, during MINExpo in Las Vegas, USA, from September 26 – 28.
The 160cm tyres have enhanced tread zone stiffness for improved treadwear, an extra deep tread pattern, and a cool-running CycleMax tread rubber compound.
They are designed with tread lug blading for additional heat resistance, interlocking blading for additional stability, and a Centrelink channel for added lateral traction and heat resistance.
In addition, the tyres have angled main grooves for forward and lateral traction, as well as a sidewall scallop for improved heat resistance.
The company believes it will become the “go to” tyre for large haulage mining operations.
