Two New Sizes for YOHT Galaxy LDSR 510
Galaxy LDSR 510 now available in sizes 17.5R25 and 20.5R25/ Tubeless tyre for wheel loaders and dozers in mining and earthmovers
Outlasting the Challenges: Two New Sizes of YOHT Galaxy LDSR 510 launched
Two new sizes of the LDSR 510 in Yokohama Off-Highway Tires’ Galaxy portfolio mean that a true masterpiece in terms of traction and durability is now available for an even broader range of wheel loaders and dozers used in earth moving and mining.
Galaxy’s LDSR 510 tyres are developed and built for severe conditions and off-road operation with heavy loads. That is why superior dependability, excellent traction, durability and cut resistance are key characteristics of the range.
The Galaxy LDSR 510 is an all-steel radial tyre constructed with premium tread compounds to reliably withstand everyday harsh challenges. The extra deep, non-directional block tread ensures excellent performance as well as abrasion and cut resistance also on rocky and gravel-type surfaces.
This general claim for Galaxy tyres also applies to the Galaxy LDSR 510. Thanks to the tyre’s specific material and construction, important characteristics such as ground stability, load carrying capacity and tyre life achieve a top ‘9 of 10’ ranking. The non-directional tread blocks ensure a similar performance in terms of traction and stability both in forward and reverse operations and allow for a convenient, wear-reducing tyre rotation. The high turn-up carcass construction protects the tyre against external damages as well as sidewall cuts particularly in cut-prone applications and ensures increased lateral stiffness, better riding comfort and prolonged tre life. With these two new sizes, the Galaxy LDSR 510 is now available in sizes 17.5R25, 20.5R25 and 23.5R25.
