New tread pattern on Trelleborg ag radials

May 10, 2011

Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas Inc. has implemented a new tread design on its Twin Radial ag tires. The new design is on sizes ranging from 710/50R26.5 to 750/60R30.5, and also 650/65R30.5.

The new tread design enhances flotation, increases respect of the soil, protects driver’s health by lowering noise and contributes to lower overall operating costs for the farmer, says Trelleborg.

The new design provides a 15% wider footprint area compared to the previous version. The tire has two additional lugs and a longer central block, offering an increased contact area to the ground. Tests carried out for both tire noise and pass-by noise demonstrated low levels. In addition, the new tread pattern has a 14% deeper lug, which provides longer tire life, contributing to lower operating costs.

The Trelleborg Twin Radial range comprises 10 sizes of radial tires for trailers that are ideal in all working conditions. The range’s main benefits are high load and speed capacity, driver comfort, even wear, good self-cleaning and reduced fuel consumption, says Trelleborg.
