MINExpo Preview: Titan Tires


STL2Titan International Inc. (Titan Tires) added an 875/65R29 size to its proven STL2+ line. This new addition is specially suited to Cat 982M wheel loaders, and adds to the existing list of sizes, which include a 23.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25. The dual-purpose E-3/L-3 tread can be selected with either cut-resistant or wear-resistant compounding for excellent performance in any operating conditions.

“What really sets this tire apart is its tied-in lug pattern,” said Johni Francis, OTR global product manager, Titan International. “The lugs are designed to work together as one unit, which provides excellent stability and even wear. Couple that with a radial construction and several compound options – and this tire is an excellent-performing, long-lasting choice for any earthmoving, aggregate or mining application.”

The tied-in, bar lug design is open and non-directional for excellent self-cleaning, and the 130-percent-level tread depth provides excellent traction and long life in rocky conditions. In addition to the currently available sizes, Titan is also testing a Low Sidewall (LSW) version of the STL2+ for the Cat 982M, which is expected to be unveiled at MINExpo 2016.

The LSW version of the STL2+ is among many announcements and product launches which will be unveiled at MINExpo 2016. Attendees should stop by the Titan booth (#4913) to learn more.

Titan Tires are manufactured by Titan Tire Corp., a subsidiary of Titan International.
