PARIS-NORD VILLEPINTE, Prague (April 17, 2012)—Off-highway tire maker Mitas a.s. has unveiled two earthmover tires that extend its ERL/ERD tire line sizes by 30 percent.
“Each off-road surface requires its own specific tread design and functionality,” said Petr Hala, Mitas product manager. “Mitas now makes specific tires for machines operating in these demanding conditions, including gravel and rock quarries.”
The ERL/ERD-40 tire features a large surface area to improve tire life while the ERL-50 tread is designed with improved cut resistance for rocky conditions. Mitas ERL tires fit loader and grader machinery while the ERD tires are designed for transport vehicles.
The new tires are made in Mitas' plant in Czech Republic and are available for sale worldwide.
