Designed for agricultural and construction tankers and trailers, the Alliance 590 range of heavy-duty radial floatation tyres has been expanded with seven new sizes. It brings the range up to eight sizes, all offered with a ten year warranty.
“We are proud that Yokohama Off-Highway Tires stands for profound expertise, i.e. the industry’s largest portfolio of flotation tyres for trailers, tankers, etc. The extent of the range, its multi-application flexibility along with the tyre’s excellent performance and durability give evidence of superb value for money – a fact that is underlined by our 10-year warranty”, said Angelo Noronha, president Europe at Yokohama Off-Highway Tires (YOHT).
The 590 was designed with a robust, steel belted construction for improved strength and better puncture protection, enabling it to handle heavy loads in the field, on the road and on construction sites. A high rubber-to-void ratio on the non-directional tread is said to ensure optimum grip and traction, as well as enable the operator to run at a lower pressure.
Compounds are cut and chip resistant, while also allowing for high stability and lasting operations. The tyres are completed by excellent self-cleaning characteristics thanks to the tread design with its high tread depth, open channels and aggressive shoulders.
Trailer manufacturer, Broughan Engineering Ltd is supplied by Kirkby Tyres, the exclusive distributor of Yokohama Off-Highway Tires’ (YOHT) Alliance brand in the UK and Ireland, and has complete assemblies including the Alliance 590. Alistair Mc Gregor at Castleview Plant, a family-run business located in Central Scotland, acquired new Broughan trailers – and expressed his satisfaction:
“I recently added 3 more Broughan trailers to my stock, supplied from GRT Machinery Ltd, and I’m very pleased that they were all fitted out on the Alliance 560/60R22.5 590 Heavy Duty 169D TL tyres. The performance of these tyres exceeds anything I have used in the past, and they cope very well in the rough conditions that they are asked to work in. They offer very good traction, especially on sloping ground when loading the trailers.
“The 590’s block pattern also has excellent self-cleaning properties, helping to kick off-off the mud before you get out of the yard and onto the road. Once on the road there is a smoother drive with good handling and no bouncing like other brands I’ve tried. The 590 pattern tyres with their heavy load carrying capability are proving to be a great addition and aiding my customers to getting their jobs done.”
The seven new sizes are: 600/55R26.5, 650/60R26.5, 650/55R26.5, 600/60R30.5, 650/65R30.5, 710/50R30.5 and 750/60R30.5, joining the original launch size of 560/6R22.5.
