Yokohama Tire Corporation’s new R69 L5-S off-the-road radial for loaders in underground mine applications is now available in size 18.00 R25.

“The R69 was designed to reduce downtime and increase efficiency. It’s engineered for endurance and is the ideal tire for businesses looking to increase speed and loads during long-haul mining operations,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama manager of commercial and OTR product planning.

The R69 L-5S offers improved durability through advanced compounds incorporated in the tread that resist heat build-up and fight cuts and chips. It also has a more durable belt package.

A high-angle sidewall that increases thickness and decreases sidewall stress gives added protection in underground mining excavations.

The tire also has a stronger casing and more extensive rim contact area via high tensile strength bead cores that lower bead stress and reduce the potential for slippage.
