Designed specifically for large combines and grain carts, it has a greater ability to flex under increased loads than a standard radial.
According to Michelin it offers operation at a lower pressure, improved traction in all conditions, enhanced service life, a casing with reinforced sidewalls and a narrower tyre to carry the load for on-road travel.
“This new CerexBib offers a massive load capacity, up to 21,960 pounds, and it has a giant footprint of approximately 486 square inches,” said James Crouch, Michelin farm segment marketing manager.
“It is built with Michelin Ultraflex Technology, which enables tyres to operate at up to 40% lower air pressure than standard radial tyres. This results in a considerable reduction of ruts and compaction, and higher yield potential.”
