To state the obvious, good OTR/EM tyres don’t come cheap and immediate availability of the right product has been less than certain in the last five or six years. Therefore it only makes economic sense to treat tyres as an investment and to maximise this investment accordingly. Speaking recently with Tyres & Accessories, Jock Aitken, Michelin’s technical manager for Earthmover and Industrial Products, stressed the golden rule for OTR sector end-users wishing to do this. It is simply, he stated, a matter of fitting the correct tyre at the correct pressure upon the correct application.
