Our Tires

Our Story:


TR Wheel Engineering was founded in 1987 by Fred Taylor as a small wheel shop in Rome, Georgia. There he began to manufacture and distribute wheels and wheel components to customers in the Southeast. Mr. Taylor found that customers wanted a “service and product integrator”. After landing it’s first major customer in Chambersburg Pennsylvania in 1995, OTR began soliciting major “original equipment manufacturers” with the concept of providing the procurement of their tires and wheels, assembling, and delivering to them “Just-In-Time (JIT)” to reduce their material carrying costs. As the company grew it required significant resources.


ith this philosophy of providing tires and wheels, assembling, and delivering them “Just-In-Time (JIT)” OTR went on a major expansion by opening up 7 mounting facilities over the next eight years and two new wheel facilities. OTR Wheel Engineering, Inc. continues today with this operating philosophy. OTR Wheel Engineering, Inc. continues to work with their customer base to innovate new product enhancements, provide cost reduction programs, and finding ways for innovation within the customer’s industry. OTR Wheel Engineering, Inc. is expanding to become fully integrated world-wide. Wheel manufacturing facilities are located in different countries along with mounting and integration facilities.

Why OTR?

Hello and thank you for visiting our website.
I am confident OTR Wheel Engineering can assist you with any questions or problems you might have with tire and wheel assemblies for Off-The-Road applications.

We have been in the business over 25 years. During this time we have expanded not only with our physical presence globally, but also in our technology as it pertains to tires and wheels.

OTR has a full time Engineering support team that can work with any company to develop new products or enhance existing processes. We have 5 patents on tires and can offer over 300 tread types and sizes.

In addition, on our wheel side, we have a full range of manufacturing capability with the capability to roll our own material so we are not dependent on foreign sources.

Our business model to function as a tire and wheel integrator has proven successful for many years.  We have global and domestic procurement and we can open up facilities for just in time delivery to help with lowering on-site inventory.

We are also proficient in wheel repair and recertification for large off-the-road earthmover and construction machines.

The other characteristic that I strive for within my family of companies is to build customer relationships. After all of the contractual and product negotiations are over, it is the relationship between OTR and our customers that sustains the business over many years.

For these reasons, I hope you inquire with OTR about any design or delivery solution you might need to assist with your own company goals and objectives.
