Titan expands Goodyear Optitrac ag tire line
Titan International Inc. has expanded its Goodyear Optitrac line of radial farm tires. The line has been engineered for heavy, wet soil conditions.
"We designed the Optitrac with a 25% deeper lug compared to conventional R-1 tires," says Titan Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jeff Vasichek. "This design provides for more aggressive traction in heavy-tillage applications. The new design also offers longer tread wear while the reinforced bead area helps the tractor withstand the forces of higher-torque applications."
A 45-degree tread lug angle promotes more open space on the lugs for better clearning and traction. "The lug configuration and mold shape were modified, helping to enhance handling and performance in the field and on the road."
Sizes include a DT806 with a standard 85-series aspect ratio, DT812 with a 70-series aspect ratio, a 65-series DT818 and three others, according to Titan officials.
