Company launches new tire type

Company launches new tire type
Alliance Tire lays claim to an industry first, a VF flotation tire that helps reduce compaction.

Alliance Tire Group has released the industry’s first VF flotation tire. The new 380 VF – for very high flexion – can carry up to 40% more load at the same inflation as its conventional radial counterparts’, or carry the same load with 30% less pressure.

At the lower inflation pressure, the footprint of the 380 VF is 25% larger than its counterparts. Lowered inflation pressure and longer footprint are both key factors to reducing soil compaction.

Alliance Tire's new VF flotation tire can carry up to 40% more load at the same inflation as a conventional tire.

The new Alliance 380 VF Flotation Radial has been released in the popular 650/55R26.5 and 560/55R22.5 sizes. Contact an Alliance Tire dealer for details. Alliance is also offering a free white paper on soil compaction and farm tires. Visit to download a copy.
