A Radial Tire for Farm Implements From BKT

Aug. 13, 2015

Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) has introduced a radial tire for farming implements featuring increased flexion (IF) technology. The new RIB 713 tire, size 280/70 R 15, is designed to reduce soil compaction and withstand punctures. BKT says it developed the RIB 713 with IF technology in response to the needs of modern agriculture for reduced soil compaction. IF technology allows for heavier load carrying capacity at the same inflation pressures of a standard, same-sized tire. This feature provides uniform weight distribution and excellent flotation properties. The tire's steel belting increases stubble and penetration resistance. In addition, the "D" speed rating ensures that the RIB 713 tire runs up to 40 mph on the road for quick travel from one piece of farm land to another.
