The John Deere 6MC, 6RC, 6M and 6R mid-sized product lines include 30 different sizes of agricultural tires. The Tractor70 and Tractor85 tires for Continental are made at the company's plant in Lousado, Portugal.

As part of John Deere's audit of the plant, Continental says says a condition by the tractor maker "was that John Deere be the first agricultural OEM auditing agricultural tire production in Lousado."

The Tractor70 and Tractor85 radial tires promote ride comfort, soil preservation and tractive force.
