Goodyear Farm Tires, a Titan Tire Corporation brand, has introduced the DT 930 1100/45R46 radial tire. The DT930 is designed with a low sidewall (LSW) aspect ratio for stability to move equipment through the field, no matter how wet the conditions.
“The DT 930 tires proved themselves last fall in the wet fields of Illinois,” says Jeff Vasichek, vice-president of sales and marketing for Titan Tire Corporation. “The wide, deep lugs on the DT 930 provide excellent flotation, enabling the user to harvest crops and power through muddy fields that narrower dualed tires could not.”
The DT 930 provides high torque transmission and reduces compaction in the field, while its low sidewall design provides stability on side slopes. The tire is agriculture’s largest radial, standing at 85 inches tall and almost four feet wide, and is designed to reduce vehicle bounce, loping and power hop. When the DT 930 tire is mounted to a large 46-inch Titan wheel, tire-to-rim slippage is minimized.
The DT 930 tires have been approved by AGCO, a leading equipment manufacturer, for use on its Challenger brand tractors. Flotation can be maximized when dualed on four-wheel-drive and mechanical front-wheel -drive tractors. DT 930 tires with appropriately sized wheels can be used in place of narrower dual rear tractor tires.
Goodyear Farm Tires are manufactured by Titan Tire Corporation a subsidiary of Titan International.
