Yokohama Tire's Y69K L-5S tire for loaders, underground vehicles, and dozers is now offered in a new size — 35/65-33 — with a compound for special cut resistance and steel breaker construction.

A thick upper sidewall and a more square shoulder profile offer extra casing protection to work in severe service applications. The extra-deep, reinforced tread offers longer tread life and enhanced durability. Yokohama uses a specially formulated CP-S compound on the Y69K. The compound is cut- and chip-resistant for an extended service life.

The Y69K comes in three other sizes: 18.00-25, 26.5-25, 29.5-29, and 35/65-33. Certain sizes incorporate rubber-coated layers of steel cord between the casing and the tread to absorb shocks and prevent cuts from penetrating the casing.
