Industrial Tyres – Tyres this size aren’t too big for the team

Managing Director, Kevin Wood who stands at 6 feet is dwarfed by these Maxam Industrial Tyres. We fitted 4 of these using our outside Service Trucks. How does one man and a truck fit something this large?

How to remove Industrial Tyres

Well, we use a large forklift to get the tyre removed and in place and for a fair amount of the grunt work depending on how helpful the old tyre and rim are. In many cases, the old rim and tyre may have been on the vehicle for years and so can become quite stuck. So a mixture of tyre levers, mallets, bangs, crashes and a bit of detergent generally get the job done (although it’s a little more technical than that) but you get the hint.

So if you have Industrial tyres of any size, shape (hopefully round), tread or brand we can provide it, and fit it onsite (or on the side of the road).

Give the team a call for all your industrial tyre needs, and any tyre from the smallest to the largest and everything in between. We are specialists with over 30 years experience.
