Kubota Offers Goodyear Optitrac Tires for M7 Series Tractors

Posted on September 6, 2019

Kubota Tractor Corp. now offers Goodyear Optitrac R-1W tires with Low Sidewall Technology, available from Titan International Inc., for Kubota M7 series tractors.

According to Kubota, 60% of its M7 series tractors are for loader applications, which require tires that offer minimal sidewal deflection and squat under increasing loads.

"The LSW Optitrac is an excellent tire option for our dealers and their customers,” says Kent Brown, Kubota senior product manager, ag utility tractors. “In grapple bucket applications, the LSW tires give you the stability and carrying capacity to move two bales at once. They’re also an excellent option for the cotton industry if you’re moving 5,000-pound cotton bales.”

Available sizes for Kubota's 128- to 168-horsepower-range tractors include the LSW420/80R30 and LSW480/70R46. .
