New tyre recommendation for grab lorry

Recommended Posts

I need to replace the 4 rear tyres on my 18t grab lorry.

 

Something that works on muddy tracks will

be good.

 

Any recommendations for type?

 

Cheers....Al

Cheers. Might be a bit too aggressive!

80% is road use.

Guessing  295/80 22.5?

What's your tyre history like, do you get lots of tyre damage, rips, cuts, punctures, and so, not getting the life out of the tyres? If so may be look at remould/cheap new casing.

Small chance of damage, mid range tyres.

Premium tyres if all distance road work with hardy any chance of damage, generally more fuel efficient/quite.

 

Have a look or ask your tyre man what local tipper/skip/muck shift firms are using. There is more choice of aggressive tyre in remould/cheap and mid range tyres.

 

Personally I don't choose remoulds, and use mid range tyres, I`ve used Hankook DH05 https://www.hankooktire.com/uk/trucks-bus/hankook-dh05.html for a long time, the only problem is the rubber depth if you plan to recut them and stone damage when the tread gets low, they seem to be pricing themselves out of the mid range band now. The last set I had fitted where Kumho KHD10 https://kumhotyre.co.uk/our-tyres/truck/ on recommendation from the tyre man, a large ish local tipper firm he services had been using then with good results. They are wearing well so far, but a little less grip than the DH05`s.

Both of those bands do more aggressive patterns as well  https://kumhotyre.co.uk/our-tyres/truck/. https://www.hankooktire.com/uk/truck-bus/tires/on-off-road.html
