Bias Tires Pose Stiff Competition to Sales of Radial tires

Radial tires have more advantages as compared to its disadvantages. However, radial tires are more difficult and complicated to repair as compared to other types of tires. Moreover, bias tires pose a stiff competition to radial tires, and the former is predicted to dominate the revenue as compared to all tire types in the off-the-road (OTR) tire market.

On the other hand, repurposing radial tires is boosting the credibility of manufacturers in the off-the-road (OTR) tire market such as Bridgestone Americas’ Aiken Plant, which converts used tires into giant watering troughs for livestock. Manufacturers are increasing the availability of low-pressure tires meant for high-powered row crop applications.
