What are the differences between the 3 generations of VF tyres?

Low-pressure tyres have evolved over time to become even more high-performance. These developments mean that you can now work at an even lower inflation pressure or carry even heavier loads. These high-tech tyres which belong to the third generation of VF tyres offer exceptional soil preservation qualities despite the load. The evolution of VF tyres has made it possible to work with bigger,...

Understanding your tractor tyres’ pressure -load -speed link

It is easy to understand that you need to increase the inflation pressure in your tyres to compensate for the weight of the implements, but it’s harder to comprehend the real impact of speed in connection with load or pressure. Yet these three factors are indissociable, involving settings on three levels to obtain the most from your tyres. The link between the three is often misunderstood, but...

Why analyse the soil footprint of your agricultural tyres?

Your tractor’s footprint is usually concealed by the towed implement, yet at a glance and in a matter of seconds it could help you detect, before the beginning of a campaign, a pressure irregularity or incorrect setting which could affect your soil. Excessive compaction beneath the tyre destructures the soil and prevents the filtration of water, air and nutrients. Deep soil compaction is...

Agricultural tyres: rules for managing the lead ratio

You have noticed abnormal wear to your agricultural tyres, or your tractor’s manoeuvrability doesn’t seem normal when you are working: too much slip, the rear axle pushing too much or the front axle that isn’t catching enough… it is quite possible that you are seeing the effects of an unsuitable lead ratio. The lead ratio is often considered as just a mechanical piece of data despite the fact...

You are equipped with VF tyres, but like a large number of users with this top-of-the range equipment, you have got into the practice of working most of the time with an average inflation pressure to simplify life and not have to think about your tyres. However, if you use your tyres to their full capacity, you can gain much more than just peace of mind, with real financial savings, in fuel and...

Fleet audit: what is the main benefit of agricultural tyres?

Performing an audit of your fleet assets is a good opportunity to review the compatibility of your agricultural machines with all your available implements. We often associate a tractor and the implement purchased at the same time with a specific work objective. But it may be astute to reconsider whether your equipment is really a good match and make the choice to adapt certain combinations, by...

What is the impact of implement settings on tractor tyres?

If you notice unusual tractor tyre wear, this may be an indication of a problem with your implement settings. After having checked air pressure and tractor tyre alignment, if everything seems in order, the problem may be linked to your tooling, so you should check your implement settings in relation to your tractor. To avoid this type of problem, you must always respect the overall coherence...

Which agricultural tyre makes it possible to avoid coming off the rim at low pressure?

Preserving your soil by avoiding excess compaction is a good strategy to secure future yields. To prevent compaction you know that you should work at low pressure, and having referred to the manufacturer recommendations you see that you can reduce the inflation pressure in your standard tyres. However, working at low pressure means that there are more rules to follow so that you do not transform...

Why don’t my agricultural tyres last long enough?

Changing a set of tyres represents a significant investment, so you are entitled to wonder why your tyres do not last as many hours as you expected. It is quite easy to make a critical judgement on the brand of tyre, considering that it’s a question of product quality. However, the number of hours that tyres can last depends on production quality of course, but more often it is a question of the...
