According to Alliance officials, the lugs combine a single-angle layer stacked on top of a wider, multi-angle lug in a design the company calls "Stratified Layer Technology," which offers a more stable, longer-lasting tread bar with added biting edges for enhanced traction.

Under those lugs run a pair of step-tie bars to anchor the tread, break up mud and minimize lug shuffling, notes Brian Sheehey, Vice President of Marketing for ATA.

"The Alliance Agri Star II is engineered and built to for stability and reliability," says Sheehey. "It starts with the wide lugs and the way they overlap along the centerline for better roading, and includes the step-tie bars. It extends deep inside the tire to the polyester casing, which offers more stability than the nylon plies you usually see at this price point."

Designed for all classes of tractors, the line offers "extra benefits to the 140-hp-and-above categories," according to Sheehey. "With its long wear and Stubble Guard Compound, the Agri Star II is priced to deliver the lowest cost-per-32nd of tread in the category, and its radial belts and durable carcass enlarge the tire's contact patch to 13% larger than a typical, comparably sized radial.

The Agri Star II, which is covered by a seven-year warranty, is available in 76 sizes, ranging from 260/70R16 to 710/70R42 and 480/80R50.
