Goodyear Farm Tires expands Low Sidewall (LSW) lineup with four new options

Des Moines, Iowa. — Goodyear Farm Tires, a Titan Tire Corporation brand, has launched four new Low Sidewall (LSW) tire/wheel assemblies for tractors, combines and sprayers. The LSW design features a larger rim diameter and shorter sidewall as compared to standard tires, which results in increased stability, reduced road lope, reduced power hop, reduced soil compaction and increased transport speeds — all claims that are backed up by years of field-testing by end users.

“As the only manufacturer of both wheels and tires for agriculture, we’ve been undergoing a very aggressive research, development and field-testing effort of LSW technology for more than a decade, and after consistently witnessing LSW assemblies outperform standard tires in the field, we’ve decided to expand the lineup extensively,” says Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager for Titan Tire and Goodyear Farm Tires. “We’re introducing four new sizes at the Farm Progress Show, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg as a significant expansion will continue through 2015.”

Goodyear Custom Flo Grip 1250/35R46 LSW

The Custom Flo Grip LSW was designed in collaboration with a Tennessee-based multi-line tire dealer whose customers needed a high-flotation option with R-2 treads for rice and cane applications, but were having serious issues with road loping during transport with the existing (competitive) 1250-sized tires on the market. The Custom Flo Grip brings the best of both worlds in terms of flotation and traction, as well as smooth roading.

Goodyear OPTITERRA 1000/40R32 LSW

The OPTITERRA LSW falls within the Goodyear Extreme Flotation™ category. Designed for the front position on MFWD tractors in collaboration with an 1100/45R46 LSW rear, the Extreme Flotation setup offers a number of benefits over a traditional dual setup.
