CHARLOTTE, N.C. — CEAT Specialty Tires Ltd. has added a row crop tire to the Farmax low compaction/high traction radial agricultural tire line it's distributing in North America.
The addition of this new tire, the Farmax Row Crop ag radial, coincides with a milestone at the Indian tire maker's year-old agricultural radial tire plant in Ambernath, India, in the country's Maharashtra state.
Available in four sizes — 320/80R42, 340/85R48, 230/95R48 and 270/95R48 — the launch marks the release of 100 unique tire sizes that have been produced at the plant in its first full year of operation.
CEAT, India's No. 4 tire maker, established a U.S. business unit in Charlotte to launch the company's radial ag and specialty tires in the U.S.
The tire joins the Farmax R85, Farmax R70 and Farmax R65 in the Farmax family and is backed by the company's seven-year warranty. All these tires feature what CEAT calls "CTR:" Low compaction, high traction, high roadability.
