SANTA ANA, Calif.—Yokohama Tire Corp. has added two new radial construction tires to its OTR lineup. The non-directional RT31 and the directional RT32 are designed to provide greater traction and durability for scrapers.
Both tires are available in size 37.25R35, with two advanced compounds offered: low-heat generating REG for longer-haul applications and CP-S for superior cut and chip resistance in aggressive-material handling, according to the company.
"The rugged RT31 and RT32 come equipped with the industry's toughest multi-layer, cross-ply steel belt package, giving scraper operations one of the best puncture-resistant offerings in the market," said Tom Clauer, Yokohama Tire senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning. "With two different compounds, and the directional and non-directional tread options, the RT31 and RT32 give fleets the ability to customize their equipment for maximum performance and efficiency."
Mr. Clauer added that the RT31's non-directional tread pattern features an extra-large void-to-lug ratio for aggressive traction in soft or muddy terrain, while the RT32's directional pattern has wide grooves that efficiently expel mud and dirt for ultimate traction.
