TORRANCE, Calif. – Featuring more than 10 years of field testing and continuous improvements of the tire structure, McLaren's Nu-Air semi-pneumatic tire series integrates the strength and stability of a solid tire with the smooth, cushioned ride of a pneumatic tire. With its lower cost per hour, the Nu-Air tire has become widely known as the smart alternative to foam filled tires and regular pneumatic tires.

Until now, only OEMs had access to a limited off-the-road (OTR) range of tire sizes. McLaren now introduces the full range both to the OEM and to the retail market. Thus, industry manufacturers and users of backhoes, telehandlers, front-end loaders, wheel loaders, and wheeled excavators finally have access to the proven cost effective technology that was once available to compact equipment only.

“Originally skid-steer loaders and some backhoes were eligible for solid cushion tires,” said George Zafirov, marketing manager for McLaren Industries. “For years OEMs and equipment users have been reporting higher equipment productivity and reduced maintenance costs derived from the usage of such tires. The continuous positive results and the numerous inquiries about other tire sizes motivated McLaren’s R&D department to invest in new tire sizes, and apply the semi-pneumatic tire technology for heavy construction equipment as well.”

The OTR solid cushion tires are not only a smart alternative to foam filled or solid tires, but also to the heavy and expensive tire chains preferred by many mining companies. The flat proof technology eliminates the need for tire prevention, while the extra weight of the tires provides the stability that is crucial on any harsh terrain. There are a variety of patterns available, allowing customers to select the right tire for their type of terrain. Particularly unique is the RT pattern for size 20.5x25. It has been developed precisely for problematic surfaces, where rocks, scrap and debris give trouble to even the most experienced operators.

McLaren Industries, Inc. is a leading supplier of replacement rubber tracks for mini-excavators, track loaders, agricultural machines and carrier vehicles, flat-proof tires for skid steers and backhoes, and over-the-tire tracks for skid steers.
