Titan International announced the expansion of its STL3 tire line to include a total of seven tire sizes. The new 875/65R29 size is in high demand for articulated dump trucks, wheel loaders and scrapers used in construction, mining and quarry applications.
“The Titan STL3 has been our top-performing radial tire for wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks for years,” said Matt Miller, tire technology manager, R&D at Titan. “Our customers have been asking for it in this new size to support a wider range of equipment models, as well as to overcome some of the challenges they’re having with competitive tires in this size, which include lack of availability and rim slip that causes bead chafing which can lead to air loss.”
The dual-taper bead design and extra-wide steel bead on the STL3 give it high resistance to rim indexing. With its E-3/L-3 non-directional tread pattern and center-riding rib, the STL3 also provides excellent traction, a smooth ride and a long life. Its full-width shoulder lug provides lateral stability. Available in cut-resistant and wear-resistant compounds, it’s suitable for a range of conditions.
With this line expansion, the STL3 family now includes seven sizes for a range of applications. The 875/65R29 joins the 750/65R25 and 26.5R25 sizes with wear-resistance compounds, along with four additional sizes offered with cut-resistant compounds – 20.5R25, 23.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25.
