Trelleborg adds farm tire, sizes

July 25, 2006

Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas "is committing more to the North American (farm tire) market," says Bill Haney, Trelleborg’s east region manager, farm and forestry tires.

Trelleborg has introduced the Trelleborg Twin Radial tire. "It’s the radialization of our existing belted flotation line."

Trelleborg also has added two North American sizes to its Trelleborg TM600 line: 480/80R42 and 520/85R42.

The sizes are designed for American tractors. "In Europe, they tend to use wider tires," says Haney. "These sizes are more narrow."
