FRANKLIN, Tenn. — Carlstar Group L.L.C. has added three sizes to its Carlisle Versa Turf radial construction tire range.
The tire offers improved flotation for better traction and to minimize turf disruption.
With the addition of the new sizes — 24x12.00R12, 12R16.5 and 23x8.50R12 — the tire is now available in sizes ranging from 18.7 to 32.6 inches in diameter.
"The new 24x12.00R12 size will fit many popular zero turning radius mowers in the marketplace," Brian Preheim, market segment manager of outdoor power equipment at Carlstar, said.
"The traction provided by this tire will impress the experienced turf care professional with the improved efficiency and stability on any terrain, but particularly those with elevation changes,"
"We are excited to expand our Versa Turf compact tractor tire offerings with the new 23x8.50R12 and 12R16.5 sizes," Travis Little, global market segment manager, added.
"This highly versatile tire design allows for great traction while still being turf friendly. This design blends the best attributes of the agricultural, turf and industrial trend patterns into one ultimate product. The next generation of sizes are designed with steel belts for premium performance in a variety of conditions."
The Versa Turf tire is designed with a directional tread pattern and engineered breaker bars for improved self-cleaning performance. The tire is designed with up to 60% deeper tread depth than standard R-3 tire designs and tapered shoulders to minimize turf damage during turns. The steel belted tires offer increased puncture resistance, the company said.
