What our customers are saying…

Little road noise even on uneven roads and tracks

"There is little road noise even on uneven roads and tracks. The grip is there in the fields. Self-cleaning properties are also good. The tyre sits nice and wide on the wheel. We are looking forward to ploughing and giving it really good test as our terrain is very rocky."
