Carson goldhofer Tyre size: This is the database of tyre about Geometrical parameters and Physical properties. The size of tyre is a team numbers, the first number shows the section width of tyre, and the last number shows diameter of rim, and all in inch. The middle alphabet or  symbol has particular meanings.  Self propelled modular transporter 


Modular trailers Tyre structure: “R” means radial tyre, “D” & “-”means bias tyre. Others: “XL” shows strengthen quality tyre, “TG” means project tractor land leveller tyre(off-highway), “NHS” means off-highway tyre. Heavy equipment trailers
