Post Titan Tire ships world's first 63-inch tire

Filed under: Etc., Tech, Commercial Trucks


Remember in the first Crocodile Dundee movie when he gets mugged in New York City and Sue says "He's got a knife," and Dundee says, "That's not a knife, this is a knife," and then he pulls out a beast-killing monstrosity of a blade? Well, that's what the folks at Titan Tire are saying right now about every other -- smaller -- tire in the world.

Titan has made a 63-inch rubber behemoth for use on trucks in Canada's oil sands. The stats on these rubber donuts is impressive: the 59/80R63 is the biggest production tire in the world, standing over fourteen feet tall and weighing 12,500 pounds with a load rating of 101 metric tons. It makes Titan a very appropriate name for the company, as we learned from another movie, Remember the Titans, that in Greek mythology the Titans were greater even than the gods. Now we can only hope this development will make the price of oil drop another ten dollars...

Will you need to roll your fenders?

What offset wheels will you use with those?

What they need to do is put some chicken wire on each side of the rim and a door. Jump inside and have someone push you down a hill. Why buy a car when you can have a 14ft tire to roll in???
Lets get a group buy going on these.

You'll have to come to Canada to buy a set. Ever hear of Fort McMurray?
