Alliance Tire Group (ATG) has expanded its Alliance Agriflex and Alliance Agriflex+ lines of high-tech IF/VF farm and self-propelled sprayer tires with the release of five new sizes.
The company says it now offers one of the world’s most comprehensive line-ups of IF/VF farm tires, and the only completely all-steel IF/VF lineup in the industry.
“Alliance now offers more than 50 Agriflex and Agriflex+ tires, extending the performance and technology to owners of most popular tractors, combines and self-propelled sprayers,” noted Trent Wallin, agricultural tires product manager for Alliance Tire Americas, Inc. “With these lines, Alliance can upgrade farmers (commercial operators) to the latest in tire technology and world-class construction and save them from spending money they don’t have to.”
ATG offers these two lines of tires in two patterns—the popular Alliance 354 R-1 design for tractors and combines, and the Alliance 363 configuration for self propelled sprayers and tractors outfitted for running in row crops. Every Agriflex and Agriflex+ tire features all-steel construction and stubble guard compounds, which add another layer of puncture resistance to the tire and allows for higher operating speeds because of steel’s heat-dissipating qualities, according to the company announcement.
The new releases include:
- Alliance 354 IF 320/105R50
- Alliance 354 IF 380/90R54
- Alliance 354 IF 320/90R54
- Alliance 363 VF 380/90R46
- Alliance 363 VF 270/95R54
Because of the specially engineered and constructed sidewalls, Alliance Agriflex IF tires can accommodate the same load as conventional radials with 20 percent less inflation pressure, Wallin explained, which reduces soil compaction. With the new tires, operators can alternatively choose to carry 20 percent more load without additional soil compaction. With the Agriflex+ tires, users can reduce inflation pressure or increase load by 40 percent as compared to ordinary radials.
“It’s easy for farmers and custom applicators to switch to Agriflex and Agriflex+ tires because they fit standard rims. There is no need to replace existing wheels or make any expensive modifications to adopt this particular technology,” Wallin pointed out. “Farmers can get a significant upgrade in equipment and performance for the cost of most standard radial tires.”
