Titan Goodyear Introduces New Radial Tire Products
According to the company, all three lines have the benefits of a radial design, including higher load capacity and superb resistance to puncture damage.
Additionally, the large contact area of radials provides for better flotation and less soil compaction. With longer footprints, the weight is distributed over more surface area, reducing the amount of ground-bearing pressure.
The Goodyear FS24 is built for use with tow-behind implements such as planting and tillage equipment. Available in three sizes - 340/65R18, 380/55R16.5 and 44/55R18 - the large contact area and rounded corners provide for high flotation, less compaction and minimal ground disturbance in the field.
Additionally, the zigzag, ribbed design ensures smooth road use while providing excellent stability in side-slope applications.
The Goodyear Muck Master Radial is built for heavy implements such as grain carts and liquid manure applicators. Available in a 750/55R30 size, the Muck Masterâ€™s large cross-section and low profile allow for superb flotation and stability. Like the FS24, the Muck Master has rounded shoulders, which help to reduce field and crop damage.
The Goodyear Super Flot Radial is built for use with implements that require high flotation, such as grain wagons, anhydrous ammonia tanks, manure spreaders, large hay balers and fertilizer applicators. Available in five sizes - 500/60R22.5, 600/50R22.5, 710/40R22.5, 710/50R26.5, and 750/60R30.5 - the lugged design provides plenty of versatility in the field.
Jeff Vasichek, vice president of sales and marketing for Titanâ€™s Goodyear brand, said: â€œTodayâ€™s farmers are traveling longer distances from field to field with increased loads. So, they are looking for a tire that can provide better roading and increased carrying capacity. Thatâ€™s what theyâ€™ll get with Goodyearâ€™s new lineup of radial implement tires.
â€œTires designed with a square shoulder cut deeper into the soil and leave a more noticeable footprint. With the rounded shoulders on the FS24, that footprint is minimized resulting in less field and crop damage.â€
Will the new products commercially benefit the firm?
