New top-notch tires for agricultural equipment

New top-notch tires for agricultural equipment

Several of the major agricultural tire manufacturers launched new tire product lines and made their announcements at fall farm shows this year. These are a few that were highlighted this fall.

Goodyear IF ag tires:

Goodyear Farm Tires, a Titan Tire Corporation brand, launched two Increased Flexion (IF) tire product lines this fall. These are the first IF offerings in both the Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires product lines. The Goodyear IF Ultra Sprayer and the Goodyear IF DT830 offer greater sidewall flexibility than a standard radial, which allows them to carry 20% higher loads at the same inflation pressure as a standard radial or the same load with 20% lower inflation pressures.

Iowa-made Mitas tires:

Mitas displayed the first premium agricultural tires made at the Charles City, Iowa, factory and sold for the North American market. The company makes a range of radial and cross-ply tires for tractors, combines and agricultural implements. Premium tire lines are available, including AC85, AC70T, AC70G, AC70H, AC70N, AC90, AC65 and SFT. Visit

Michelin’s 6-psi tires:

Michelin recently introduced two standard-size Very-High Flexion (VF) tires for high-horsepower tractors, including both row-crop and 4-wd models. The tires are called YieldBib and operate on 6-psi pressure. According to Michelin, this is 40% less air pressure than that of standard radials, which produces less compaction and more traction.
