BFGoodrich has launched of a new ag tire, the BFGoodrich Implement Control, which the company says is intended to give American farmers a long-wearing product to protect soil quality and maximize yields.
Entirely American made, the tire is designed for pull-behind farming implements and tillage applications to handle heavy loads.
“BFGoodrich, one of the original U.S. tire brands, has 115 years of proven performance in North America. We are now adding farm tires 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 Tires brand.
The new BFGoodrich Implement Control is a low-pressure, high-flexion IF tire designed to carry 20% more weight at the same pressure as a standard radial tire, the company says. BFGoodrich says this new, premium implement farm tire includes additional features such as:
- A damage-resistant off-road casing that allows the tire to withstand rough impacts and endure a high load capacity;
- A tread pattern that utilizes 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.
The BFGoodrich Implement Control tire is designed to work with Central Tire Inflation Systems and is available immediately in sizes IF 320/70R15 and IF 280/70R15.
