As the leading Australian agricultural wheel manufacturer for all agricultural machinery, Titan agricultural wheel series is extensive and includes:
Titan is the leading manufacturer of high speed wheels for agricultural tractors. Our recent adjustable “Waffle” Wheel and the successful Fixed Wheel range have been designed for tractors speeds above 40 kph, including for 65 kph vehicles to satisfy the ever increasing speed requirements of the Australian market. The adjustable “waffle” wheels are unique in being able to provide customers with high speed performance with the ability to change vehicle track settings.
As the needs of the Australian tractor market grow more sophisticated every day, so does the technology of the components. The redesign of tractor drivelines and axles to compensate for these higher speeds has impacted wheel and tyre assembly. In response, Titan has developed the most advanced manufacturing techniques to ensure that the optimum “round” wheel is created and these high-speed wheels are uniquely designed to be used comfortably both on and off the highway.
Dual wheels on tractors are now an accepted way of improving the drawbar output of tractors, providing extra traction without compaction giving valuable flotation in wet conditions.
Most kits are sold matching the same size as the inner tyre however thinner sizes and step downsizes are also options. Duals are easily fitted to all tractors by means of over centre clamps, a spacer barrel
maintains the tyre centres, the over centre clamp hooks onto the power rail and a threaded rod with hook is used to adjust the tension on each clamp. The number of clamps is determined by the wheel diameter ie: 34” upward would be 6 clamps per wheel.
King track duals are not recommended over 400 HP.
Adjustable and Fixed Wheels were designed for tractors to raise the height to clear the various crops. Sometimes referred to as High Clearance Wheels, these wheels are usually narrow in width, to enable the wheel to fit down between the rows to eliminate crop damage.
There are 2 types:
This enables the tractor to be used for different track spacings eg: if the lug on the rim is 2” wide then 4” increments on track can be achieved allowing 4 different widths ie: 64”, 68”, 72”, 76”. Diameters: 20” to 54”. Adjustable wheels are not recommended on high speed tractors.
A much cheaper option than above for farmers that don’t require different track widths. Diameters: 16” to 54”.

Titan Australia are leading manufacturers of quality mining wheels and accessories. At Titan, we understand that mining wheels must be engineered to last and to handle the harsh testing environments of diverse mine sites and operations. Our mining wheels are specifically built with this in mind.
Our range of mining wheels that we manufacture includes underground and surface mining wheels, OVMs, SVMs, Double Gutter and specialised loader wheels.
Underground Mining Wheels
Underground mining is definitely a unique and testing environment where harsh conditions are an understatement. From 20” Drills to 33” LHD and ATD, Titan manufactures a full range of underground mining wheels that you can trust. Our underground mining wheels are engineered to perform and built to last in Australian conditions.
Titan’s XT range of surface mining wheels are manufactured with fully machined back and front sections and heavy-duty bead seat band and side rings. The XT Series has been extended to include a variety of designs available in numerous sizes for disc wheel and demountable applications.
Quick Change – Outside Vertical Mount (OVM)
Available in 51”, 57” and ultra-class 63” sizes, the revolutionary patented OVM® was the first vertical mount outer dual wheel ever designed and eliminates the need to remove wheel bases from hubs during tyre changes. he OVM® is also the first wheel in the large earthmover class to feature specific heat treatment of HSLA (High Strength Low Alloy) steel, heavy duty, fully machined bead-seat band and side rings and full machining on all surfaces of the wheel base to achieve maximum life, performance, air retention and ergonomic efficiencies. Since introducing OVM® wheels, mine sites have recorded 50% to 60% savings in downtime and maintenance costs and commensurately increased safety margins. Watch our OVM Demonstration Video
Six Piece Vertical Mount (SVM) Wheels
Available in 51”, 57” and ultra-class 63” sizes, and designed to complement the OVM® in dual applications. Utilising HSLA steel to maximise fatigue life, the SVM® wheel features a modified back section including an integrated lock-ring and o-ring groove to accommodate the addition of a second bead-seat band. This feature eliminates the high-risk practice of breaking the rear bead in confined spaces using hydraulic rams.
The combination of materials and manufacturing process for the OVM® and SVM® wheels has dramatically increased the mining industry’s longevity benchmark for heavy-duty truck rims.
Titan Australia’s range of double gutter wheels are available in 51”, 57” and ultra-class 63” sizes, Double Gutter wheels eliminate the need to remove wheel bases from hubs during tyre changes. Manufactured from the HSLA (High Strength Low Alloy) steel, with a fully machined bead-seat band, heavy-duty side rings and full machining on all surfaces of the wheel base providing maximum life, performance, air retention and ergonomic efficiencies.
Specialised Loader Wheels
Designed to minimise downtime and maximise productivity for larger wheel loaders the Vertical Mount Loader (VML) is designed to drastically reduce the time required to change loader tyres. Similar to the SVM, the VML wheel compliments the tyres with dual bead seat band design eliminating the practice of breaking the rear bead in confined spaces using hydraulic rams. This feature combined with the Titan fitting stand components are pre-seated into the tyres minimising the time the loader is on the pad and not in production.
Features & Benefits
The Rim Stand is designed to allow components to be seated in the tyres, ready for scheduled tyre changes. It increases safety during tyre changes on large mining trucks and enhances the benefits gained when using the OVM® and SVM® wheels on mining trucks.
The Rim Stand is a rim base attached in a horizontal position to an elevated stand and secured to a workshop floor or tyre fitting area. It gives tyre fitters the ability to mount and seat components in the workshop. Doing this allows the production vehicle to continue operation while tyres are prepared for scheduled fitment.
Tyre fitters are less exposed to the prolonged routine procedures of removing and installing heavy earthmover wheels. For example – extended use of impact guns.
Reduction in Downtime
Because the tyre is seated with the components and ready for fitment to the Rim Base, the tyre and all associated components can be fitted as one unit when the tyre change is carried out on a truck.
The Rim Stand is available from Titan Wheels and can be supplied to suit OVM® or SVM® Wheels as well as conventional wheels.
