DES MOINES, Iowa. (Sept. 3, 2014) — Goodyear Farm Tires, a Titan Tire Corp. brand, launched four additional Low Sidewall (LSW) tire/wheel assemblies for tractors, combines and sprayers.
The four assemblies are: Goodyear Custom Flo Grip 1250/35R46 LSW, Goodyear Optiterra 1000/40R32 LSW, Goodyear Optitrac IF710/60R46 LSW and Goodyear Super Traction Radial IF710/60R30CFO LSW.
The LSW design features a larger rim diameter and shorter sidewall, Titan said, as compared to standard tires, which results in increased stability, reduced road lope, reduced power hop, reduced soil compaction and increased transport speeds.
“As the only manufacturer of both wheels and tires for agriculture, we've been undergoing a very aggressive research, development and field-testing effort of LSW technology for more than a decade, and after consistently witnessing LSW assemblies outperform standard tires in the field, we've decided to expand the lineup extensively,” said Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager for Titan Tire and Goodyear Farm Tires.
“We're introducing four new sizes at the Farm Progress Show, but that's just the tip of the iceberg as a significant expansion will continue through 2015.”
