MAXAM has added its biggest open pit mining tire yet, the MS403 59/80R63, to their large mining series. To meet the most challenging application requirements in the open pit mining segment, MAXAM has engineered the MS403 to provide a robust and durable solution for the largest mining haul trucks.

To meet the demands that large haul trucks with 63" tires face, the 59/80R63 MS403 encompasses a heavy-duty casing and bead construction with advanced compounding technology. Similar to the large 63" product lineup in the mining series, the MS403 has undergone advanced engineering, extensive research, and rigorous global testing repeatedly. With the main goal of providing exceptional performance and lower cost-per-ton value, MAXAM designed the 59/80R63 MS403 to maximize global mining operation's productivity.

Featuring an aggressive tread pattern that increases shoulder lug stability and reduces irregular wear on the tread, the MS403 59/80R63 is engineered to conquer even the most severe challenges on haul roads. With global feedback from customers and operations, MAXAM has optimized the bead construction and casing, enabling greater load capacity and ground contact.

Mirroring the products within MAXAM's large mining series, the MS403 features a deep tread depth for boosted tire life. It also contains a heat-resistant undertread for reduced internal heat buildup, increasing the tire's TKPH/TMPH. In addition, it features a unique two-stage lug to improve self-cleaning capability, combating the toughest jobs for utmost productivity.
