BKT Adds Three New Sizes to V-Flexa Tire Line

The company created VF 600/65 R 26.5, VF 650/55 R 26.5 and VF 560/60 R 22.5 for the radial tire range designed for agricultural trailers.

BKT‘s V-Flexa range is expanding with three new sizes.

The company created VF 600/65 R 26.5, VF 650/55 R 26.5 and VF 560/60 R 22.5 for the radial tire range designed for agricultural trailers.

Presented at Agritechnica 2019, the latest-generation of the V-Flexa is a flotation product which features a tread with three belt layers in heavy-duty steel, BKT says. Its extra-large tire print enables better load distribution, but BKT says the tire still operates delicately on the land where necessary, thus avoiding soil compaction and so maintaining the value of crops. Self-cleaning, durability and low rolling resistance are other qualities of the tire, BKT says.

The new VF 600/65 R 26.5, VF 650/55 R 26.5 and VF 560/60 R 22.5 solutions thus join the size which is already available, VF 600/55 R 26.5.

Yokohama Off-Highway Tires America has released a new design for irrigation tires with a Y-shaped center block for the Alliance 778 irrigation tire. The overlapping Y shapes in the centerline of the zero-degree lug pattern improve both traction and durability compared to traditional lug patterns, Yokohama Off-Highway said.

"You are guaranteed to be operating in wet conditions with an irrigation tire, so you absolutely need great traction," said James Crouch, Yokohama Off-Highway Tires America national segment manager—agriculture and forestry. "But you also want to minimize rutting and make sure every tire on every tower keeps itself clean, no matter which direction the tire is operating in. We completely redesigned the Alliance 778 irrigation tire to meet the very specific needs of farmers under irrigation."
