Michelin will drop BFG ag in North America
Michelin North America Inc. will no longer offer the BFGoodrich Power Radial 80 in North America, effective Dec. 31, in order to concentrate on its Michelin brand ag tire line.
Michelin will convert its BFGoodrich manufacturing capacity to production of Michelin brand ag tires. The company builds ag tires at plants in France, Poland and Spain.
"The decision to discontinue the BFGoodrich Power Radial 80 tire will augment our capacity to better serve both the replacement and original equipment markets with our premium Michelin brand tires," says Bill Schafer, vice president of sales and marketing for Michelin Ag Tires, North America.
