93% of OTR tires in mining sites are removed due to cuts, impact or separation. Only 7% are removed due to tread wear and being worn out. This article discusses the causes of OTR tire takeoffs and the importance of under- and over-pressurization of mining tires. A good read for all tire customers. While tire fill is not always ideal for all mining applications, it can significantly cut down this 93% on loaders and scoops.

More talk about recycling tires...What better way to re-use your tires than fashioning it into the perfect summer swing for your little ones? Instead of throwing out-or hopefully recycling-old and left over tires why not turn it into a fun and useful gift of a tire swing for your son or daughter. It’s the perfect time of year to do it with the whole summer ahead of them to enjoy it!
