Bridgestone Americas Inc. is expanding production of MasterCore OTR tires at its plant in Aiken County, S.C.

This month, Bridgestone will add production of two MasterCore products - in sizes 53/80R63 and 59/80R63 - at the plant, which is the company's only plant in North America that produces giant OTR tires.

According to Bridgestone officials, the MasterCore mining tire stands 13-feet tall and weighs upwards of 10,000 pounds and is designed to enable a more “efficient and sustainable mining operation.”
