Alliance Adds 3 Solid Galaxy Tires

June 7, 2016

Alliance Tire Group (ATG) unveiled three new solid Galaxy tires: the LHD 500 SDS L-5, the Super Smooth SDS L-5, and the YardMaster SDS. These products complement the company’s first solid tire, the Beefy Baby SDS, which was launched last year.

The three new Galaxy tires are on display at WasteExpo 2016 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. The show runs June 7 to 9.

Bruce Besancon, vice president of marketing for Alliance Tire Americas, Inc., says the SDS solid line is a perfect fit for the waste management industry.

“We’re seeing a lot of interest in our solid tires from operators of scrapyards and transfer stations, where puncture hazards are highest and downtime is extremely costly. We’re also seeing continued interest in the pneumatic Galaxy Hulk and the pneumatic Beefy Baby III—which has become the gold standard for skid steer and loader tires.

“Meanwhile, people managing compost and remediation projects for waste management companies are looking for tires from our industrial and even agricultural lines, covered by our Galaxy and Alliance brands,” he says. “The Galaxy Muddy Buddy is great for slick conditions in compost yards, and the steel-belted Alliance Multiuse 550 brings all-weather performance and a big rubber-to-void ratio to tractors and loaders in waste management. Of course, we also have the Galaxy Bosslift III for forklifts and the Aeolus line of truck tires—for which we are the sole U.S. distributor—for garbage trucks and dumpster handling trailers.

The Alliance Tire Group display is located in Booth 4259 at WasteExpo 2016.
