The Alliance 585 tire for Manitou
The Alliance 585 tire range joins the standard equipment of Manitou MLT NewAg telehandlers. Alliance Tire Group (Yokohama Off-Highway Tires from 2021), already awarded by Manitou as "supplier of the year in 2019", adds another tire to the equipment of the French manufacturer's telehandlers, thus strengthening the partnership between the two companies.
The 585 is a versatile tire with steel belts, which increase its durability and - reads a note from the company - combines performance and productivity. Developed specifically for telehandlers, backhoe loaders and compact loaders, the large, multi-directional tread blocks increase the contact area with the ground for a comfortable ride on hard surfaces and excellent stability with heavy loads, even on hilly terrain. The tread depth - says the manufacturer - offers traction and grip thanks to an optimal ratio of full to empty. It stands out for its self-cleaning properties on non-compact terrain. In addition to the steel belts, reinforced sidewalls and special compounds effectively protect the tire from punctures, cuts and tread damage, providing a high load capacity.
These characteristics make the 585 tires particularly suitable for the multi-purpose applications of telehandlers. The Alliance tyres are available in 13 different sizes, four of which - 460/70R24, 500/70R24, 440/80R24, 400/80R24 - have been custom-designed for telehandlers.
