Alliance Has New VF Implement Flotation Tire
The new very high flexion (VF) Agriflex+ 381 radial implement tire from Alliance Tire Americas Inc. operates at inflation pressures as low as 15 psi.
The Alliance Agriflex+ 381 also features steel belts and a stubble-resistant compound.
The Alliance Agriflex+ 381 is available in the VF320/70R15 154D size, which replaces 12.5L-15 tires on cultivators, disks, farm wagons, utility trailers and other implements.
Alliance says the Agriflex+ 381 is designed for equipment that is transported long distances to get field to field. Traditional 12.5L-15 tires aren’t designed for that application.
The broad, even footprint reduces soil compaction, and the tire's D speed rating permits operation at up to 40 mph at proper load and inflation pressure.
