Michelin offers radial farm tire as replacement
Michelin North America has added two new sizes of its AE50 YieldBib radial tire and made the tire available to the replacement market.
For the first time, farmers now can order all four sizes of the new tire as a replacement for their current tires or as an option on new machines. Honored in January by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers for its technological advancement, the Micheline YieldBib radial tire now comes in these sizes for 4WD and MFWA high-horsepower tractors:
* VF380/85 R34
* VF420/85 R34
* VF480/80 R46
* VF480/80 R50
In addition to being a Very-High-Flexion (VF) classification, the tire is protected by the new Michelin Stubble Shield technology.
Says James Crouch, farm segment marketing manager for Michelin: “This is the first VF-class standard-size radial. Farmers can now get all the advantages of a Very-High Flexion tire plus the stubble-fighting protection of Michelin Stubble Shield without having to change rims."
According to Michelin, opening the replacement market to the Michelin YieldBib is important because it gives farmers an opportunity to upgrade their tires to improve the performance of their current machines.
