HYBRID TIRE LAUNCHED
Titan International has launched the Goodyear R14T hybrid tire that brings the benefits of Low Sidewall technology to compact tractors for the first time. Available in LSW and conventional sizes, the tire features a unique tread that works for ag, turf and industrial uses; it combines an R-1W continuous arc bar angle on the outer tread with the center lug design.

The Trelleborg TM600 tire has an innovative “stepped” tread design that provides a more solid foundation to the lug. It’s designed to fill a gap between R-1 and R-2 tread types. The tread design offers a wider footprint in the soil to reduce compaction concerns. Learn more about the TM600 at trelleborg.com.
