The tyres also have a 23% larger footprint than the previous model, which allows them to be run at very low pressures.

The VF rating also means the tyre can carry 40% more load at the same pressure.

All models are compatible with central tyre inflation systems and have been designed for a range of field-going implements, including trailers, slurry tankers and spreaders.
