Why CEAT Specialty tractor tyres are the right choice for farm needs

Tue, 22 Nov 2022 | PRODUCTS


If you need new tractor tyres and are searching the internet for ‘tractor tyres for sale’ or ‘tractor tyres near me’, you will not be short of choice in terms of makes and models. So when picking from tractor tyres’ price lists, why should you put CEAT Specialty tractor tyres at the top of your selection?

A proven history

CEAT has well-established credentials in tyres – and in tractor tyres and others for agriculture in particular. The firm that began as Cavi Elettrici e Affini Torino was founded almost a century ago, in 1924. Its products attracted Indian investment, and on 10 March 1958 it was incorporated in Mumbai as CEAT Tyres of India. Today it is part of Mumbai-based RPG Group, one of the country’s fastest-growing businesses, with a US$3bn turnover.

While a relatively recent newcomer to the European agricultural/tractor tyre sector, CEAT has a global footprint that covers over 120 countries. Its annual total tyre production is around 15 million units of all types, with markets spanning cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses and light commercials, plus industrial equipment including agricultural machinery, earthmovers and forklifts. CEAT entered the agricultural market in 2016 via the creation of CEAT Specialty, which manufactures and markets tractor tyres and others for agricultural use.

Researched tread design

The research and development that goes into CEAT Specialty product evolution encompasses all areas of tractor tyre design, a key example being the crucial element that transfers the tractor power and engages with the ground – the tractor tyre tread. CEAT Specialty tractor tyre tread design features on tractor tyres such as the Torquemax include a tilted lug tip that reduces vibration and noise at speed on the road, with handling enhanced by a higher angle and lug overlap at the centre that provides better road handling. In the field, a lower shoulder angle enhances traction, while rounded tractor tyre shoulders help minimise soil and crop damage, and a wider tread and larger inner volume reduce soil compaction. In addition, the R1-W tread depth ensures a long tractor tyre life.

The latest construction technology

Premium tractor tyres in the CEAT Specialty range incorporate some of the very latest tractor tyre technology designed to boost efficiency and enhance soil protection. For example, tractor tyres in the Torquemax line are available not only in standard construction format, but also as IF models, where the construction allows the tractor tyre to bear 20% more load than a standard version, or to be operated at 20% lower pressures than the standard model for the same load, helping spread the load over a broader, longer footprint for more traction and reduced compaction. Many sizes are also available in VF format, which increases these figures to 40%.

A large range, a wide selection

Whether you are seeking standard tractor tyres for a basic tractor that performs simple tasks, or premium tractor tyres to work in the most demanding field conditions on high-horsepower tractors used for primary cultivations, CEAT Specialty has tractor tyres to suit every application, from cross-ply/bias construction Farmax AS R1 units to our flagship Torquemax radial tractor tyres.


The latest manufacturing technology

The CEAT Specialty manufacturing plant at Ambernath, Mumbai, employs a highly-professional tractor tyre manufacturing workforce, working with the very latest manufacturing equipment. It includes an R&D centre focused on developing tomorrow’s tractor tyres.

Trusted by the biggest names in tractor manufacturing

CEAT Specialty tyres are fitted as original equipment by some of the tractor industry’s biggest names, including CNH Industrial’s New Holland, Case IH and Steyr brands, AGCO’s Massey Ferguson, Valtra and Fendt businesses, John Deere and JCB. And the company’s industrial tyre activities are not limited to agriculture – CEAT Specialty also supplies construction equipment OEMs including Caterpillar and Wirtgen Group.

When you are next searching the internet for ‘tractor tyres for sale’ or ‘tractor tyres near me’, the choice of makes and models may be confusing. But before you start selecting from tractor tyres’ price lists, take a look at what CEAT Specialty offers. Whatever your farm’s needs, it’s likely you will find they have exactly what you require.
