Operating sites include specification requirements around monitoring equipment required on tyres and wheel assemblies to optimise the life and safety/integrity of this equipment. OEM requirements for tyres and wheel assemblies are tracked with records kept and maintenance strategy work orders raised as required. Mine operator establishes a haul truck payload target and maximum speed policy ? in relation to for each haulage application on site (or universally adopted for all site hauls) ? that balances:

  1. Haulage productivity
  2. Tyre and wheel/rim (and truck) component life
  3. Incidents such as operationally induced smoking tyres (or tyre fires)
