New Galaxy Giraffe ND Telehandler Tire Features Low Aspect Ratio

As of Jan 1, 2021, Alliance Tire Group and Alliance Tire Americas, Inc. changed their names to Yokohama Off-Highway Tires and Yokohama Off-Highway Tires America, Inc respectively. The Alliance, Galaxy and Primex brands and product names remain unchanged. Product information is available at www.yokohama-oht.com.

The new Galaxy Giraffe ND brings a sleek, low aspect ratio and deep, non-directional block tread pattern to Alliance Tire Americas Inc.'s telehandler tire line. The result is an extremely high-efficiency tire that delivers outstanding performance on and off paved job sites, says Ryan Lopes, National Product Manager, Materials Handling and Solid Tires for Alliance Tire Americas. 

"The Galaxy Giraffe ND is designed for 28-inch rims, though the low aspect ratio of the tire means that it easily replaces the 13.00-24 and 14.00-24 sizes we commonly see on telehandlers," he explains. "That low aspect ratio allows us to create a lower, sturdier sidewall for extra stability, and reduces the volume of the tire, which saves money for owners who foam-fill their telehandler tires.
