Largest tyre from Nokian rolls into the mines

Nokian Heavy Tyres has produced the largest and heaviest tyre in the factory’s history; the 29.5-29 Nokian Mine King L-5S. The tyre has a diameter of 2,010 mm, a width of 750 mm, and a weight of 1,050 kg.

The tyre offers grip and reliability for large underground mine loaders. Field testing is set to begin during the autumn.
– The tyre is designed for underground machinery, with bucket capacities of up to 17 tonnes of crushed stone. The sufficient tunnel size and volumes for such machinery can be found in mines located in the Nordic countries and Australia, for example, says Project Manager Jyrki Perälä.
