【Guide】How to choose the right OTR Tire?

Trucks at construction and mining sites often travel across challenging surfaces while carrying heavy loads. The OTR Tire on these vehicles can be exposed to tremendous forces. That’s why it’s critical that you select the right tires for these profit-generating machines.

Assessing the site environment

【Guide】How to choose the most right OTR tires?

There are numerous factors that should be considered when selecting tires for haul trucks and assessing your site’s footprint tops the list. Before selecting a specific tire, you should have a thorough understanding of your vehicles’ on-site activities.

Monitoring of truck operating data

【Guide】How to choose the most right OTR tires?

At mine sites, this can be accomplished by mounting a location tracking unit on a truck and letting the vehicle run for a designated period. This will help you develop a “site map.” At the same time, you should track the distance the truck travels, its speed and the load that it’s carrying.

Selection based on tire TMPH or TKPH rating

Then take the average load and multiply that number by the vehicle’s average speed. This will give you the site’s ton-miles-per-hour (TMPH) or ton-kilometers-per-hour (TKPH) rating.

【Guide】How to choose the most right OTR tires?

Every OTR tire, regardless of application, also has a specific TMPH or TKPH rating, which represents the maximum recommended load the tire can carry at a certain speed. In each case, you want to pick a tire whose TMPH or TKMP is higher than the site’s TMPH or TKPH rating. This will help ensure you’ve selected the right tire for the site.
