In open pit mining, tires are a top 5 operating costs, with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of tires on even one machine, tire management isn’t just crucial to reducing costs but improves uptime and helps companies fulfil sustainability commitments. In underground mining one damaged sidewall on a single piece of equipment can bring the entire operation quickly to a stop.
