Titan Releases a Radial for Implement Tires


Titan International Inc. introduces a new Contractor Radial implement tire. The tire’s Very High Flexion (VF) design allows growers to carry the same weight load as a standard implement tire at 40% lower inflation pressures, which reduces soil compaction.

Three additional sizes of the Contractor Radial tire are in development.

The radial construction also allows for cooler running temperatures, which will extend the life of the tire versus a traditional bias, Titan says.
“The vast majority of implement tires on the market are bias, but there are a lot of benefits to using radials on an implement,” says Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager for Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires. “Implements have gotten heavier over the years and are outgrowing the load capacity of standard bias sizes that run at significantly higher inflations.

“In addition, farmers are traveling longer distances from field to field with increased loads. So, they’re looking for a tire that can provide better roading and increased carrying capacity at reduced pressures, which is exactly what the Contractor Radial tire offers.”

The Contractor Radial tire features the same tread design as the Goodyear FS24 implement tire. Titan says the zigzag, ribbed design ensures smooth road use while providing excellent stability in side-slope applications. The large contact area and rounded corners provide for high flotation, less compaction, and minimal ground disturbance in the field.

The Contractor Radial is available in two sizes, and Titan says the tire offers superior performance versus the traditional bias option.
