Apollo Tyres launches 57-inch off-highway tyre

Apollo Tyres launched Xtrax 40.00‐57, the largest tyre produced in India, at the ongoing 11th International Mining and Machinery Exhibition (IMME) 2012 in Kolkata. Each of these tyres weighs 3,500 kg and has a total height of 11.7 feet.

Used for mining purposes in 240-tonne
dumper trucks, each tyre is manufactured using 1,900 kg of rubber, 750 kg of carbon black, 350 kg of nylon fabric and 500 kg of other rubber chemicals. These tyres are being cured at Apollo's Limda plant, in the western state of Gujarat, which has one of the biggest curing presses available in Southeast Asia.

International Mining and Machinery Exhibition (IMME) is India's largest trade fair dedicated to the mining
industry, which is organised by Confederation of Indian Industries (CII).
