Titan to host 6 tire auctions to benefit FFA

Titan Tire Corp., a subsidiary of Titan International Inc., is making big plans for the summer of 2015. In addition to launching new Goodyear Low Sidewall (LSW) tires for tractors, combines and grain carts, the company is hosting eight Ride 'n' Drive events and six benefit tire auctions with all proceeds benefiting regional Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapters.

“In 2014 alone, we raised more than $200,000 for regional and state FFA chapters through our tire auctions at farm shows and community events, and this year is expected to keep pace with that high momentum,” says Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager at Titan Tire Corp. “In addition to raising money for FFA, it also gives growers an opportunity to bid on Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires at a highly discounted price. It’s a win-win.”

Event-goers also are given the opportunity to test out the latest technologies from Goodyear Farm Tires — including LSW, which reduces road lope, power hop and soil compaction — at the series of Ride ‘n’ Drive events hosted by Titan Tire throughout the country.
