How To Find the Right Tractor Tyre For Your Farm

Tue, 20 Sep 2022 | PRODUCTS

Just as farms come in a variety of sizes and types, so do tractors to match their needs – and therefore so do the tractor tyres to fit those tractors. A whole host of factors – including whether your farming enterprise is large or small, predominantly arable or livestock-based, and how you use your tractor – will dictate the best tractor tyres for your machine. Before you sit down to search the internet for ‘tractor tyres for sale’ or ‘tractor tyres near me’, and begin studying tractor tyres’ price lists, the advice below could help you find the right tractor tyres for your farm.

Your tractor’s workload

For many modern farming needs, radial tractor tyres such as the CEAT Torquemax and most of the Farmax range have largely succeeded cross-ply/bias types. They offer multiple advantages, including enhanced grip, improved ride and greater durability. However, there are some applications where cross-ply/bias tractor tyres may better suit your farm’s needs. Firstly, they are cheaper to produce and buy, so if cost is a consideration that’s high-up on your list of priorities, then cross-ply tyres may be the right tyres for you, particularly if you carry out only a limited amount of road travel and primary cultivation work. If your tractor’s work is largely yard-based, working on concrete livestock yards with an implement such as loader, yard scraper or straw chopper, then cross-ply tractor tyres may actually be of benefit, particularly in the case of a loader, where their more rigid construction helps bear the load on the tractor’s front axle.

Your field/enterprise type

If your fields are largely down to grass, and your work does not take you far on the road, then you may wish to consider equipping your tractor with flotation tractor tyres rather than conventional types. This has the potential to significantly reduce compaction, and so protect the sward and maintain grass yields.

Conversely, if your farming is based on specialist bed- or row-grown crops, you may wish to consider equipping your tractor with rowcrop wheels and tractor tyres. These will minimise the footprint created by your tractor, but on the other hand will increased the ground pressure imposed over that smaller area.

However, for the majority of modern agricultural field tasks, radial tractor tyres such as CEAT Torquemax and Farmax types will offer the best blend of capability and cost-effectiveness. Radial construction brings with it the benefits of greater carcase flexibility, particularly in the sidewalls, leading to improved grip, fuel efficiency and comfort.

 

These key factors should help you determine the right type of tractor tyre for your tractor, its workload and your farm enterprises. By using this advice, and that of your tractor tyre dealer, you will be able to get the best return on the investment you make in new tractor tyres. And that will help prolong the period until you next find yourself browsing for ‘tractor tyres for sale’ or ‘tractor tyres near me’, and searching through tractor tyres’ price lists.
