Retreaded tyre


Tyre specialist OTR has launched a re-treaded tyre for rigid dump trucks operating in harsh quarry environments. The RDTR New Tread uses pre-formed synthetic tread patterns, which are then vulcanised onto the casing, providing new tyre quality at retread costs, the company says.

Users take their casing to OTR and have it exchanged for the retreaded one. The earthmover version of the tyre is said to have reduced running costs by 30 per cent.
