Michelin introduces farm tire

Feb. 6, 2001

The Agribib Row Crop tire, introduced today by Michelin North America Inc., is designed to be less invasive to crop root structures.

The R1W tire features a narrow section width and has additional lugs and rounded shoulders. The flexible casing is engineered not only for heavy loads and high air pressures, but also to deliver a large footprint, which minimizes compaction.

The tire is available in size 380/90R46. Another size, 320/90R50, will be availble by the second quarter.
