The production of the tyre is expected to commence by the second quarter of next year. The Earthmax SR 468 will be a part of the range of radial tyres used for off-road vehicles and equipped with an all-steel structure which provides greater resistance to the casing and hence against damage, the company said in a release on Tuesday.

“With this Giant 57″ tire, the prototype of which has been made, we wish to send a positive message to the market, to our partner distributors and to our end users,” company’s Joint Managing Director Rajiv Poddar said.

According to Dilip Vaidya, president and Director of Technology at BKT, “It is a very important moment. A giant product has been created, which will now be subject to the most rigorous testing up to the spring of 2021, until we are sure we have achieved the highest possible level of quality and reliability, as always. Only when we are absolutely sure we can offer our users the best Earthmax SR 468 possible, will we officially launch the new 57-inch giant.“

The Earthmax SR 468 comes with special tread design and compound, created to limit the heat generated. The E-4 depth of the tread provides extreme resistance in highly challenging conditions.
