Alliance 585 Tyres Become a Factory Option for the Manitou MLT NewAg Telehandlers

Alliance 585 tyre range

The Alliance 585 tyre range has been officially homologated by Manitou as an option for the manufacturer’s range of MLT NewAg telehandlers. This tyre option in size 460/70R24 is already available from factory on MLT NewAg and NewAg XL ranges. 

Partnership Announced Between Alliance and Manitou 

Alliance 585 tyres are now available on many models of the MLT NewAg and NewAg XL ranges. These tyres respond to an increased demand from customers who are looking for tyres suitable for the challenging usage on hard surfaces”, says Camille Rouvrais, Global Product Manager (MLT). 

Alliance Tire Group (Yokohama Off-Highway Tires as of 2021) has been already recognised by Manitou as The Supplier of the Year (2019) and adding another Alliance tyre to the factory’s options further proves a steady partnership between both companies.  

Just as the Manitou MLT NewAg telehandlers are designed for maximum efficiency and versatility, this is also true for the Alliance 585 tyre range. “We see growing tendencies towards machines used for versatile tasks and operations, i.e. machines that are used in various surroundings for loading and unloading, all kinds of tasks on farm yards as well as road transport on a day by day or even hour by hour basis. This requires machines that offer true versatility – such as telehandlers – and this also requires tyres that deliver a perfect job whatever the circumstances are. That is exactly what the Alliance 585 stands for”, summarises Kristoff Van der Burght, Head of OEM, Europe, at Yokohama Off-Highway Tires (previously Alliance Tire Group).
