Earthmover Tires: After Design, then What? 680247

After design, all of the desired elements of an earthmover tire must be translated first to a molded shape and then to a simplified shape for the building operation. These translations must have optimum values to produce a final quality tire with the required performance characteristics.

Modern quality control practices during the manufacturing steps of material preparation, tire building, shaping, curing and finishing then insure conformance to specification.
