New Alliance 321 Plus R-4 Bias Strong Option for Backhoe and Compact Wheel Loaders


Alliance Tire Group (ATG) has announced the release of the Alliance 321 Plus, a new series of heavy-duty tires for backhoe and compact wheel loaders. Thanks to the tyres’ high tread depth, robust tread design, wide lugs, and heat resistant compounds (HRC), the R-4 bias tyre range delivers good results.

Alliance Launch New Product

“As diagonal industrial R-4 tyre, the new Alliance 321 Plus complements our tyre portfolio with an offering that ensures smooth and efficient operations of backhoe and compact wheel loaders under all circumstances. Heat resistant compounds provide for good durability even under challenging heavy-duty conditions”, explains Angelo Noronha, President EMEA at Alliance Tire Group.

In addition to using special compounds, development engineers at Alliance Tire Group worked on the tread design: The robust tread pattern features a high tread depth for an extended non-skid-depth tyre life along with good performance on construction sites, farms and any other field of operation.

Rather wide lugs were chosen for improved resistance against buckling, tearing and cracking, whilst narrow gaps prevent stone entrapping between lugs during operation. As the Alliance 321 Plus was originally developed as a performer in high temperature regions such as Middle East, Africa or India, for example, heat resistant compounds were used – thus also ensuring heavy-duty capabilities of this tyre in temperate climate zones.

All planned sizes of the new and highly durable Alliance 321 Plus have now been released. This includes sizes 12.0/70-16, 12.5/80-18, 15.5/60-18 and 17.5/65-20 as well as 380/80-24 (14.9-24), 440/80-24 (16.9-24), 480/80-24 (18.4-24), 480/80-26 (18.4-26) and 440/80-28 (16.9-28). A superior new development in terms of weight, tread depth, lug width etc., the 321 Plus tyre range compliments Alliance Tire Group’s familiar 533 range as a premium offering.
