Since a tire dozer is used not only for dozing and leveling, but sometimes for pushing a motor scraper, tires with better traction than loader tires are necessary.
Other requirements vary widely depending on job conditions.
TRA Codes of tires for tire dozers:
L-2, L-3, L-4, L-5
Wheel Dozers are specifically designed for mobility, maneuverability and good speed. Wheel dozers can travel at speeds of up to three times faster than track-type tractors.
What is very important while choosing the right tire is to pay an attention to its characteristics, especially in the poor working conditions. Tire pattern should have wide and thick tread blocks that can help to provide supperior cutting, wear and impact resisting performance. Moreover, due to wide and thick tread the traction becomes much better and mud draining and side sliding properties improves it's self-cleaning and operation stability. For example Yokohama OTR tires are the perfect example of a nice balance between high quality based on Japanese technologies and acceptable price.
