Danvers, Mass. – Maxam Tire announced Caterpillar has validated and approved the 875/65R29 Maxam MS405 L4 tire for use on specific Cat982M Medium Wheel Loaders.

Maxam specialty tires are manufactured in state-of-the-art facilities with advanced engineering and superior design delivering high quality products to their customers and Cat.

The Maxam MS405 “65 Series program” is engineered for high torque, harsh applications where extreme traction is required. Featuring a deep E4/L4 lug pattern that combines excellent grip, stability and performance, the MS405 provides users a solution that meets all harsh demands. Developed with a cut-resistant tread compound and deep undertread, the puncture-resistant MS405 allows superior productivity and minimal downtime. Deliberately designed to minimize vibration at haul speeds, the MS405 provides loaders, graders and earthmovers the lowest cost-per-hour.

“The MS405 was designed to thrive under extreme and rugged conditions, exceed expectations and deliver value. Furthermore, Maxam has the support of the Global Dealer Servicing Network with over 1,800 strong and growing allowing for ease of access to the full product line,” says Troy Kline, president at Maxam Tire North America.


The addition of the MS405 furthers Maxam’s strong relationship with Cat as Maxam currently supplies 23.5R25 MS302 as a factory fitment option on Cat 950GC, 950L, 950M, 962L, and 962M in certain regions. Maxam MS302 tire sizes have also been validated and approved for future factory fitment on additional Cat Medium Wheel Loaders.
