Traction Tread Tires

Cat® Construction Tread tire design is the right choice for maximum performance in your toughest environments. It is designed for smaller machine applications, such as construction building or framing, landscaping, and loading where better traction is required.


Benefits of Flexport™ Construction Tread Tires

  • Patented sidewall ports make the ride more comfortable for operators
  • Elliptical ports won’t collapse under heavy loads, reducing stress for longer wear life
  • Greater machine stability when carrying maximum loads
  • Deep tread delivers long wear life and excellent traction—on any surface
  • Tread pattern handles tough terrain, and allows easy, smooth transitions from unimproved to improved surfaces
  • Highest quality rubber compound means durability for longer wear life
  • Puncture-proof design puts an end to fixing flats
  • One-piece tire-and-rim design reduces tire servicing costs

Elliptical-shaped Ports are Designed Not to Crush


Other tire companies manufacture tires with round holes. The round design easily collapses into a flat shape under a load that create corners that cause “pinch” or “stress” points. Stress point damage will typically result in cracking and chunking of a tire. Caterpillar designed Flexport™ tires with elliptical-shaped ports are designed not to crush when compressed by heavy weight. Because the ports don’t crush, this reduces stress points and increases wear life.
