Michelin Rolls Out Three New Ag Tires

Michelin North America has unveiled three new agriculture tires—the SprayBib VF 480/80R46 177D, SprayBib VF 380/90R54 176D and CereXBib IF 1000/55R32 CFO 188A8. All three tires feature Michelin Ultraflex Technology designed to promote soil protection, fuel savings and longer service life, the tiremaker said.

“As farm equipment has grown larger and heavier in recent years, farmers now cover more acres per day, but soil compaction has become a greater challenge,” said Mike Pantaleo, customer engineering support for Michelin Agriculture tires. “Michelin Ultraflex tires address this issue by operating at lower pressures than standard radial tires, therefore producing a larger footprint. This larger footprint distributes the weight of the machine over the largest area possible to reduce compaction.”

The new VF480/80R46 177D Michelin SprayBib is designed to offer the farmer a unique sprayer tire that falls between the standard, narrow row-crop tire and a flotation tire for pre-planting applications, Michelin said. This tire provides a load capacity of up to 16,094 pounds and at speeds of up to 40 mph.

The Michelin VF380/90R54 176D is designed for high-clearance sprayers and row-crop tractors. The tire has a load capacity to carry today’s largest sprayers and planters, and does so at very low pressures compared to standard radial tires, Michelin said.

The new IF1000/55R32 CFO 188A8 CereXBib is the largest harvester tire in the Michelin portfolio and is designed for use on large harvesters and grain carts.
