BFGoodrich, the Michelin-owned tyre brand known for its motorsport and off-road racing tyres has launched a new agriculture implement tyre- the BFGoodrich Implement Control. The tyre is aimed at helping farmers protect soil quality and maximise yields. Entyrely American made, the tyre is designed for pull-behind farming implements and tillage applications to handle heavy loads.
The tyre is, the company says, a low-pressure, high-flexion IF tyre designed to carry 20 per cent more weight at the same pressure as a standard radial tyre. Features of the tyre include:
- a renowned damage-resistant off-road casing that allows the tyre to withstand rough impacts and endure a high load capacity;
- a high-performing, tough tread pattern that utilizes innovative rubber compounds to fight against stubble wear and tear;
- a large footprint that reduces soil compaction and increases yield;
- and a flexible sidewall that allows for optimized performance for traction in the field and long wear on the road.
“BFGoodrich, one of the original U.S. tyre brands, has 115 years of proven performance in North America. We are now adding farm tyres to the portfolio with technology that will protect crops and the bottom line,” said David Graden, agriculture operational marketing manager for Michelin North America, parent company of BFGoodrich Tyres brand.
The BFGoodrich Implement Control tyre is designed to work with Central Tyre Inflation Systems and is available immediately in sizes IF 320/70R15 and IF 280/70R15.
