ATG supplied its Alliance 392 HD all-steel radial tyres in support of a truck expedition to the highest point on Earth ever reached by a motor vehicle.
The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., has announced that the ATG (Alliance Tire Group), a group company involved in the production and sales of off-highway tyres, supplied its Alliance 392 HD all-steel radial tyres in support of a truck expedition to the highest point on Earth ever reached by a motor vehicle.
The expedition was carried out in collaboration with ATG’s German distributor, Bohnenkamp, as part of a project that installed shelters and an emergency wireless radio systems as well as achieving a record high altitude on Ojos del Salado, the world’s highest active volcano located in the Andes Mountains on the Argentina–Chile border. The project team completed the installation at 6,400 metres above sea level and further reached an altitude of 6,694 metres above sea level, the highest point ever reached by a motor vehicle. The project’s success was facilitated by ATG’s Alliance 392 HD tyres, which delivered outstanding performance over severe surface conditions that included jagged lava rocks, volcanic sand, and steep slopes, as well as a wide temperature range of -30°C to +35°C.
The Alliance 392 HD tyre is an all-steel radial tyre with a high load-carrying capacity and a high floatation structure that enables the truck to float over sand and loose soil by suppressing soil compaction, thereby protecting the soil. The tyre also delivers outstanding handling stability, durability, and wear resistance across a wide range of vehicle speeds and in severe climates and terrains, such as those encountered at the high altitudes reached by the recent expedition.
横滨橡胶株式会社宣布，ATG （Alliance Tire Group），一家生产和销售越野轮胎的集团公司，以其Alliance 392 HD全钢子午胎支持达到一个有史以来车辆可以达到的地球最高点的卡车探险。
这个与ATG德国经销商Bohnenkamp一起合作的探险，除了是设立庇护所和紧急无线电系统计划的一部分外，也实现了创纪录的高海拔探险，成功登上位于阿根廷-智利边界的一座活火山-- 奥霍斯-德尔萨拉多山（Ojos del Salado）。该项目团队完成了高于海平面6，400米的安装，并进一步达到海拔6，694米的高度，实现了车辆从未登上的最高点。这个计划能够成功， ATG的Alliance 392 HD轮胎功不可没。该轮胎在恶劣的地面，包括锯齿般的熔岩、火山砂及陡坡，并在-30 ◦C 和+35◦C之间的广泛温度范围，表现杰出。
Alliance 392 HD轮胎是一条拥有高承载能力和高漂浮结构的轮胎，使卡车能够抑制土壤压实，漂浮在沙子和松散的土壤上。该轮胎在广泛的车速、恶劣的气候及严峻的地形下都能提供卓越的操控稳定性、耐用性及抗磨耗，就如近期在高海拔探险中所经历的一样。
