Load comparison between standard agricultural tyres and VF tyres

Your existing implements have a pre-defined weight which you cannot change, and if you buy new implements they will logically be bigger to improve productivity and therefore certainly heavier. If you cannot modify the weight of each implement, you will have to compensate for this load by increasing the air pressure in your tyres. This is the usual choice that is made with standard tyres,...
