Hong Kong - A Hong Kong company says it can supply giant, extreme load off-road tyres to the world's mining and construction community. In a press release, the company says, â€œThe worldwide shortage of giant OTR tyres is having a negative impact on production in the mining and construction industries, which consume a substantial amount of the OTR tyre supply. Companies needing replacement tyres are having a difficult time finding any substantial inventory of OTR radial or cross-ply tyres for their heavy equipment.â€
The company, Xtreme OTR Tires says it can quickly supply many of the sizes that have been hard to find during the shortage including: Radials in sizes 27.00R49, 33.00R51, 36.00R51 and 40.00R57 and cross-ply in sizes 27.00-49/48pr, 33.00-51/58pr, 36.00-51/58pr, 37.00-57/68 pr, 40.00-57/68pr and 46/90-57/76pr.
A major factor in OTR tyre demand, said Xtreme, is global growth in the mining sectors in India, Australia and Indonesia. These countries are projected to have large investments in mining operations in 2012, which will continue to drive increased demand for giant OTR tyres.
