Aqaba Container terminal are using 280/75R22.5 Magna M-Terminal tyres since February 2019 and tyres are performing excellent with 100% satisfaction!

In July whe went to an Aqaba Container terminal for a technical site visit and to check the performance of 14 280/75R22.5 Magna M-TERMINAL tyres. 2 Terminal trucks that are operating in the terminal were inspected by us.

  • 8 M-Terminal tyres fitted under a trailer
  • 6 M-Terminal tyres fitted under a truck (prime mover)


Tyre Performance Report: Truck (Prime mover)

Tyre performance report: Trailer

Trailer is not running with single fixed truck/ prime mover, hence complete running data is not taken into consideration

Findings during inspection

The appearance of all the 14 tyres that we checked was good, the wear percentage of the 6 tyres that were fitted under the truck (prime mover) was excellent. No major damages was found on the tyres and all tyres maintaining 145psi which is great! The Terminal Trucks are running an average of 400 hours per month according to the terminal engineers. The Terminal members are very pleased with the quality performance of our tyres.

Suggestions for the future

After this successful technical site visit we made some new appointments/ suggestions to guarantee the quality of our tyres some of these suggestions were;

  • Periodical terminal cleanliness to remove the debris which can cause tyre damages
  • Ensure valve caps on all the tyres to increase the tyre life
  • Maintain the pressure at 145 psi
  • Suggest to do proper vehicle maintenance (alignment/ tyre rotation/ balancing / routine pressure check both in hot & cold condition)
