OTR tyres, there are essential differences

OTR tyres are available in many types because they are used for such a wide range of activities. If we look at pattern depths, we encounter four different types, namely E2/L2/G2, E3/L3/G3, E4/L4, L5.
OTR tyres, there are essential differences

Three basic types

The standard version features a pattern depth of N (for Normal), which is referred to as the 100% pattern. Tyres with this type marking are available for categories E2/L2/G2, E3/L3/G3, E4/L4, L5.

A deep-pattern tyre is available, namely the D1, if greater tyre protection is needed due to the encountered surface or conditions. This tyre has a pattern depth of N x 1,5, or a 150% pattern. It is available for categories E4 and L4.
If even more protection is needed, we can supply branded tyres with an extra-deep pattern and a D2 marking. In this case, the pattern depth is N x 2,5. Or in other words, the tyre has a 250% pattern and a TRA code of L5.
