New Carlstar Tire Minimizes Turf Disturbance

Oct. 15, 2019

The Carlstar Group LLC has rolled out its new, radial Carlisle Versa Turf tire.

The tire has been designed to minimize turf disturbance while optimizing traction thanks to 60% deeper tread depth compared to standard R3 tire designs, according to Carlisle officials.

"We are so excited to bring this new construction to the market," says Brian Preheim, Carlstar market segment manager.

"The Versa Turf is the perfect blend of R1 traction with R3 turf protection. The tire is strategically constructed to optimize tire-to-soil impact without damaging turf."

The tire is engineered with superior mud-shedding performance by featuring self-cleaning breaker bars in the tread and rounded shoulders. Carlstar says this design reduces turf damage during turns while improving traction in all conditions, including snow and ice.

The Versa Turf tires come in sizes 18x8.50R10 (6L09621) and 26x12R12 (6L0915) and will be available to order in November.
