Seven new sizes added to Alliance 590 range

Yokohama Off-Highway Tires (YOHT) has added seven new sizes of the Alliance 590 range for agricultural and construction transport applications.

It brings to eight the total number of sizes available for this heavy-duty radial flotation tyre for trailers and tankers.

The original launch size was 560/60R22.5. The new sizes are: 600/55R26.5; 650/60R26.5; 650/55R26.5; 600/60R30.5; 650/65R30.5; 710/50R30.5; and 750/60R30.5.

The heavy-duty radial flotation pattern Alliance 590 was designed to specifically meet the requirements of all kinds of transportation operations in agriculture and construction.

This flotation tyre features a robust, reinforced steel-belted construction for improved strength and better puncture protection, thus enabling it to gently handle heavy loads in fields, on roads and on construction sites.

The high rubber to void ratio of the non-directional tread ensures optimum grip and traction as well as lower soil pressure in the field along with a smooth and comfortable ride on the road.

At the same time, low deflection along with superior cut and chip resistant compounds allow for high stability and lasting operation on various surfaces. Excellent self-cleaning characteristics also result from the unique tread design with its high tread depth, open channels and aggressive shoulders with wide openings.

Kirkby Tyres
Kirkby Tyres, the exclusive distributor of the YOHT Alliance brand in the UK and Ireland, recently supplied the Alliance 590 to Carlow-based trailer manufacturer Broughan Engineering Ltd. for fitment on its trailers.

Alistair Mc Gregor at Castleview Plant, a family run business in Scotland, acquired the new Broughan trailers – and expressed his satisfaction: “I recently added three more Broughan trailers to my stock, and I’m very pleased that they were all fitted out on the Alliance 560/60R22.5 590 Heavy Duty 169D TL tyres.

“The performance of these tyres exceeds anything I have used in the past, and they cope very well in the rough conditions that they are asked to work in. They offer very good traction, especially on sloping ground when loading the trailers.

“The 590’s block pattern also has excellent self-cleaning properties, helping to kick off-off the mud before you get out of the yard and onto the road. Once on the road there is a smoother drive with good handling and no bouncing like other brands I’ve tried.

“The 590 pattern tyres with their heavy load carrying capability are proving to be a great addition and aiding my customers to getting their jobs done.”
