At the end of the year 2002 the mammoth beast-complete with new tires towering nearly 13-feet high and weighing almost eight tons-was commissioned at the Triton North Rochelle Mine in Gillette.

BFS Off-Road Tire designed the Firestone 70/70-57 Super Rock Grip Deep Tread tire in cooperation with LeTourneau to specifically meet L-2350 requirements. According to BFS.

Le Tourneau and Firestone claim it is the largest tire in the world situated on the world’s largest loader. The tire, fitted on a Titan rim, has an overall diameter of 4 m (13 ft), a width of 1.78 m (5.83 ft), and a total mass of nearly 7.3 t (8 tons).

One 70/70-57 tire costs $135.000, but with the chains, the price goes up to $265.000!
