BKT offers three models of EARTHMAX tires for the rigours of mine work.

BKT has launched a Giant version of EARTHMAX SR 46 for rigid dump trucks operating at mines, dams and large worksites. This solution is available in the largest size which BKT has ever made: 33.00 R 51. With a diameter of over three metres, this tire weighs 2,400 kg.

The EARTHMAX range of large mining tires from BKT are designed to handle rocky and uneven surfaces, rough terrain, and other challenges in mining operations. They are intended to be resistant and reliable, with the ability to withstand cuts and tears to prolong the life cycle of the tires.

The tires in the EARTHMAX range are a broad range of radial solutions designed to facilitate the best possible ground load distribution for dump trucks, wheel loaders, dozers, and graders. 

All EARTHMAX tires are distinguished by their All Steel structure which provides resistance to the casing and so against impacts. These are essential features when faced with particular obstacles on the ground which could expose the tire to serious risk of puncture or damage to the casing.

EARTHMAX SR 46 is fitted to rigid dump trucks which operate in rocky environments such as mines. Specifically designed to transport heavy loads, this tire guarantees a high level of resistance to cuts thanks to its casing with a steel belt. Thanks to the specific design of the tread with blocks and grooving on the circumference, it guarantees reduced damage to the surface of the product and improved performance on bends.

EARTHMAX SR 45 is also designed for rigid dump trucks and has a specific design of blocks and a deeper tread, which guarantees the product an extended life cycle.

EARTHMAX SR 53, classified L-5, has been designed for loaders operating in difficult conditions. The tread consists of a compound which is particularly resistant to cuts. In addition, it is designed to offer extraordinary self-cleaning properties, which facilitate the expulsion of stones and other foreign bodies.
