What is OTR?

Tire classification: OTR TBR PCR AGR Aircraft tires


What is OTR tire?

OTR is short for off the road tires. OTR tires are designed with blocky, heavy-duty tread patterns and puncture-resistant sidewalls. It refers to the deep treaded tires that provide high traction over unlevelled surfaces, including rock, mud, loose dirt, or gravel. Various OTR vehicles include cranes, wheel loaders, Dozers, graders, dumper trucks, compactors, military trucks, and specialized purpose vehicles. OTR tires provide high heat and rolling resistance, better durability, enhanced vehicular performance, optimum stability, easy mobility, and reduced contact patch area. As a result, these tires are widely adopted across various sectors, including construction, mining, recreation, and other industrial applications.

What is TBR tire?

TBR means truck and bus radial tires. So it can be seen that TBR tyres are mainly used for truck and bus vehicles. Sometimes, TBR tyres are called commercial tyres, as these tyres are often used on commercial vehicles. In addition, the TBR tyre’s structure is all steel wire, which means that they have better loading performance. TNR Tyres offers TBR tyres in different sizes, for example the 13R22.5, 12.00R20 and the 315/80R22.5.

What is PCR tire?

PCR stands for passenger car tire, PLT tyres are also often mentioned, which is a slightly broader concept. PLT tyres include PCR and Light Truck tyres. However, these Light Truck tyres should not be confused with TBR tyres. PLT tyres consist of a semi-steel structure which provides a better and more comfortable driving experience.

What is AGR tire?

AGR means agricultural tire. known as farm or agricultural tractor tires, are designed to provide reduced soil compaction. They are usually manufactured with a high-flotation tread design, which enhances the soft and loose field traction, without damaging the soil’s crop-growing capability.

What is aircraft tire?

Aircraft tires, which is specially designed for civil or military aircraft. Aircraft tires support the weight of the aircraft while it is on the ground and provide the necessary traction for braking and stopping. The tires also help absorb the shock of landing and cushion the roughness of takeoff, rollout, and taxi operations. Aircraft tires must be carefully maintained to perform as required. They accept a variety of static and dynamic stresses and must do so dependably in a wide range of operating conditions.
