Radialization in Small OTR Tires

The new Double Coin plant in Thailand, which incorporates some of the most advanced tire-making equipment in the world, began OTR radial production at a good time:

  • Demand for OTR radials is up.
  • More and more small OTR tread patterns are radial, as opposed to bias.

We are getting rave reviews on the OTR, TBR and industrial tires arriving in North America from our highly advanced plant. Please click below to take a quick 360-degree video tour of the facility.

Demand is thereDouble Coin dozer

The US replacement OTR market is expected to experience modest growth in 2020 after a solid showing this year. There is growth in construction, particularly in the sun belt, and aggregates are doing well as a result.

The equipment rental business is very robust, which offers an opportunity for Double Coin dealers.

The industrial tire sector — ports, terminals, rail yards, heavy manufacturing — continues to grow as well, while mining is holding steady.

Radialization continues

Construction, earth moving and grading applications that put on relatively high mileage are seeing the benefits of radial tires because they last longer, reduce fuel consumption, and increase the transfer of horsepower to the ground. 

Constructed with steel belts to protect the tread area, radials offer enhanced load-carrying capacity and generate less heat when hauling at higher speeds and longer distances. Therefore, OTR radials are a good fit for haulage, loaders and graders. Bias tires are a better fit for job sites with more stationary work and less travel.

Here are two of the most popular Double Coin OTR radials rolling out of our Thai plant:
