Tire Tales: Too Much Tractor Tire

The trend for agricultural machinery to become increasingly large and powerful might lead farmers to believe that bigger is always better. Though larger machines frequently lead to increases in overall productivity, having the biggest tires may, in fact, reduce the efficiency of your farm equipment. Recently, I helped a customer dispel the mistaken belief that “bigger is better” by outfitting their tractor with the tire size they needed to optimize performance and avoid the other pitfalls that could arise out of “over-tiring” your equipment.

Is IF/VF the Future of Farm Tires?

Since the development and introduction of IF, then VF, tire technology nearly a decade ago, more and more farmers have been using them as a way to offset withering profits caused by low commodity prices and increasing input costs. Farmers fighting against tighter profit margins can increase their yields with high-tech tires like our AgriFlex line of IF/VF tires, and now the question begs to be asked: are IF/VF the future of farm tires?

Should I Buy a Radial Farm Tire?

By the mid-1970s, almost every car in the United States had converted from bias tires to radial tires. However, scroll through pictures of farm equipment from the 1980s, 1990s, and even the early 2000s and, with a few exceptions, the machines are equipped with bias tires. Now, after years of perfecting high-performing radial technology in large tires for farm machinery, growers have better choices than ever.

Alliance Tire Americas Launches Massive Increased Flexion (IF) Harvest Tire

Standing nearly seven feet tall and more than four feet wide, the new Alliance Agriflex 372 IF 1250/50R32 CFO tire from Alliance Tire Americas, Inc. is a massive step toward minimizing soil compaction. Thanks to increased flexion (IF) sidewall technology and precision engineering, each of these huge tires can carry up to 22,480 pounds at an inflation pressure of just 46 psi, which helps reduce yield-limiting compaction that can be caused by combines and grain carts, says James Crouch, Agricultural Marketing Specialist for ATA.

Row Spacing and Its Effect on Tires

Ask any long-time farmer what the secret to running a successful operation is and you’re sure to get a multitude of answers—but the underlying theme you’ll discover is the maximization of resources. For today’s farm to flourish, it's vital that they make the most of all of their assets, from dollars and manpower to the soil beneath the sun. One way farmers are increasing efficiency is with narrow row spacing, which allows them to intensify management of two limited resources: the land and the sun. And to keep up with changing practices like narrower row spacing, new innovative tires are being developed to help farmers reduce the impact of their machinery on the land while keeping their farms sustainable.
