“Mitas developed the VF HC 1000 tire to meet the demand of increased load and speed requirements of agricultural machinery,” said Andrew Mabin, Mitas’ sales and marketing director.    

The VF tire, made at the Mitas Tires North America plant in Charles City, Iowa, has a “D” speed category allowing it to reach speeds of 65km/h.  The tire also has a 62.5% higher load capacity then a standard tire and can carry a maximum load of 6,500kg, but use the same size wheels as a standard tire.

The VF HC 1000’s larger footprint leads to less soil compaction and increased mobility under difficult and wet soil conditions, Mitas said. It will be available on worldwide markets during the year 2014.
