Vredestein has added another four sizes to its premium Traxion Optimall VF range, making the tyre available for tractors from 160 hp and above.
The benefits of the Traxion Optimall series in terms of self-cleaning properties, grip, comfort and a long tyre life are now also on offer in the following sizes: VF710/60R42 and VF650/65R42, aligned with the corresponding front sizes VF600/60R30 and VF540/65R30.
Vredestein says the VF 710/60R42 is an ideal size for many arable farmers as the tyre is wide and provides both a large footprint and good traction. The incorporation of Vredestein Traxion Optimall VF technologies mean the tyre can be used at a very low tyre pressure to prevent soil compaction.
The limited diameter of 1.95 m makes the tyre suitable for most tractors from 160 hp to 250 hp. The combination of a relatively low aspect ratio with Vredestein F+ technology ensures excellent stability, making the tyre ideal for use in hilly terrain and on slopes in mountain areas, according to the tyre maker.
The main tyre combination for tractors from 160 hp to 250 hp is the 650/65R42 with the 540/65R30. There is a growing demand for these versatile and all-round tyres in VF technology. Vredestein offers the Traxion Optimall VF in this size combination when a low inflation pressure is required. Together with an extra high load capacity, these are clear benefits for all kinds of jobs, from arable farming to transport activities and for large farmers and contractors working on grassland.
The Traxion Optimall VF has more rubber in the centre of the tread in the driving direction, providing continuous road contact and excellent driving comfort. The F+ technology also keeps the tyre stable at low pressure during transport activities at high speed. Vredestein claims the Traxion Optimall tyres last up to 30 per cent longer than their premium competitors due to the large contact area on the road and well-chosen rubber compound.
