BKT’s wide range of specialist Off-Highway tires welcomes a new, truly Giant product. It is the EARTHMAX SR 468 and it has been designed to fit out rigid dump trucks. So far the prototype has been made in the 40.00 R 57 size and is ready to be tested in coming months by BKT engineers.

The history of EARTHMAX SR 468 is particular, since the new machinery to make this enormous tire reached the Indian plant in Bhuj last January, just before the lockdown which affected – at various levels and at different times – the Asian continent too. Initially, owing to the emergency situation created by the Covid-19 pandemic, the machinery which reached Bhuj was not immediately installed. Only after a temporary shutdown of BKT’s manufacturing facilities, which was necessary to implement a rigorous safety plan for all staff, did activities finally return to full operation. Including the installation of the new machinery for the Giant 57” tire, installed thanks to the online help of the manufacturer and to the BKT engineers on site.
