Thats one hell of a huge tyre. First it was JK and now its Apollo. Just wondering how many of these get manufactured in a year and how many do get sold? Or are these made for order? Any ideas how much do one of such costs?

They have been used in India since a long time. My birth town Noamundi (Earlier Bihar & later came under Jharkhand) had these from as long as I can remember(80s). Its a TATA Steel mining township. Infact during Vishwakarma puja(a Hindu god, the divine architect) we were allowed to visit the plants where these giants dumped the iron-ore into the crushers. What a sight it used to be.

They have been plying in Singhbhum(now under Jharkhand) & Keonjar(Orissa) districts since ages. This belt has one of the richest Iron ore deposit in world.

And no they arent allowed on highways. They just run in the mining belt which is off-limits for general public.

Dont have any pictures handy as of now. So sharing some that I could find on google.
