Farm Tires: PSI vs. Compaction

September 20, 2012

While at the 2012 Farm Progress Show, we caught up with Michelin Tire. Yohann Leblanc talked to us about their new farm tire, the YieldBib, and how it compares with their older farm tires. Using less PSI as tires of the same size, it offers a better footprint for less compaction, more traction, as well as better road handling. Leblanc fired up a simulator to display tire impact on soil as well as on flat surface.
