With a network of dealers all over the world, Titan is a global brand that original equipment manufacturers and operators can count on for durable products and quality service.
Titan’s core business is to provide high-quality wheels and tires to the agricultural community. Our customers include top OEMs like John Deere, Case New Holland, Kubota and AGCO, as well as individual farmers who purchase Titan and Goodyear Farm tires through local independent dealers. Characterized by quality craftsmanship, unique tread designs and excellent durability, Titan is leading the way in agriculture. No other tire company focuses on agriculture, and no one does it better than Titan with the largest dealer network and selection of tires and wheels in the industry.
Titan has a strong presence in the construction industry. Well-suited for many applications, including excavating, trenching and road grading, Titan industrial wheels and tires are designed for loader/backhoes, excavators, wheel loaders, cranes, skid steers and forklifts. Heavy duty ply ratings and extra wide lugs make Titan tires extremely durable. Designed for versatility and engineered for performance, Titan tires are resistant to punctures, tears and cracks while providing excellent traction and stability in mud, clay, gravel and challenging terrain.
It is important to use the right tire for the job, and Titan manufactures tire lines suited specifically to industrial and construction applications. Designs include Goodyear IT510, IT520, IT525, IT530, Laborer and Sure Grip Lug, and Titan Contractor, Contractor FWD and Industrial Tractor Lug.

In the forestry industry, tires play a substantial role in a logging company’s efficiency and production. As loggers work in a challenging environment every day, they need tires that are durable and perform at the highest standard. Titan recognizes the harsh conditions of the forest and that’s why logging companies have come to rely on Titan’s Goodyear Logger Lug III.
With the new Logger Lug III you get the best of the best: a high-quality, high-performing forestry tire of ultra durability— backed by the experience, expertise and joined strength of three legendary names in tire manufacturing: Goodyear Farm Tires, General and Continental, all companies Titan acquired. The Logger Lug III's steel belt construction and specialized rubber compound make it tough. The lug angles permit easy cleaning and give the ideal balance between traction and cut resistance. Find out more about our forestry tires in the Logger Lug III brochure.
Titan Tire entered the mining market in February 2008 with the production of its first giant radial off-the-road tire. In 2010, Titan introduced its second generation 007 MFT mining tire product line, offering enhanced durability, a more aggressive tread pattern, improved heat dissipation and the ability to carry a larger payload. Click here for a list of sizes and specifications.
To complement Titan's giant tire line, Titan Wheel offers the Superduty Titan Machine Taper (STMT 63) and Accelerated Change Technology (ACT 63) wheel assemblies. These assemblies weigh less than competitors, allowing more payload capacity per haul truck. The ACT allows tires to be changed or rotated without the need to dismount the wheels. This system can save mining contractors nearly 50 percent of the time previously spent changing tires. See complete STMT 63 and ACT 63 design features in this brochure.
Titan is the only company with the ability to design, test and produce both wheels and tires for the mining market. Because of this unique ability, Titan has created Titan Mining Services (TMS) to offer complete tire, wheel and track services to end users near large mines. The company's first location is in Fort MacKay, Alberta, Canada. Titan chose the oil sands to begin these services because of the great amount of equipment used in the region. Titan is partnering with Saskatoon Wholesale Tire Ltd. who has been in the area for a number of years and also represents Titan Tire. As the company grows, Titan will plant the TMS locations around the world.
