MAXAM manufactures high quality specialty tires in its state-of-the-art facilities with advanced engineering and superior design.

The tire has been deliberately designed to minimize vibration at haul speeds, with regard to operation costs, the MS405 tire has been designed to make loaders, graders and earthmovers run at the lowest cost-per-hour.
