Tire ballasting or liquid ballasting is highly recommended in O.T.R. drive tires to:
- Improve traction in severe heavy conditions
- Reduce tire slippage
- Reduce fuel consumption
- Increase vehicle stability
- Agility, Accessibility and Attention (AAA)
When tires are under lower operating pressures, liquid ballast immensely increases tire stiffness. Because of this, we do not recommend for operating speeds higher than 30 km/h due to increased difficulties in vehicle handling.
We take great care in our OTR liquid ballast services due to the high nature and safety involved for the drivers. Trained professionals using correct liquid ballast types, and the proper precautions in place, help to efficiently provide the best service possible for our customers.
