CEAT to Showcase Latest Tires at Farm Progress Show
CEAT Specialty Tires will unveil its new 800 series tires and a radial ag implement pattern at the upcoming Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, on Aug. 30 through Sept. 1.
“The CEAT Torquemax VF has doubled in size since the previous show in Boone,” say CEAT officials.
The tire has been designed for high-power tractors, offers very-high flexion VF technology and is now available in size for the VF800/70R38.
The CEAT Yieldmax, now available in the size 800/65R32, offers increased load carrying capacity to “support larger combines, as well as high traction and stability,” according to CEAT officials.
“We are very thankful for the reception CEAT has received from American farmers since we entered this market five years ago,” says Amit Tolani, chief executive, CEAT Specialty. “We look forward to sharing news about our new releases and the fact that our company is in expansion mode. We are adding capacity every quarter and are looking at increasing our overall capacity by 75% this year.”
Tolani says that in addition to the release of the 800 series tires, the company is developing 850 and 900 series tires. The size IF 850/75 R 42 will be released as part of the company’s Torquemax range next month.
“Word-of-mouth on CEAT ag tires has been very positive in American farming communities,” says Tolani. “The price-performance equation delivered by CEAT ag tires adds up to a very competitive cost per hour.”
