Yokohama Off-Highway Tires launches two more sizes of its radial tractor tire Alliance Agri Star II. Sizes 800/70R38 and 210/95R18 are now available, bringing the total number of sizes in this tire range to 89.
“We see customers’ appreciation across different markets such as Germany, France, Spain, Italy or the Netherlands. We receive positive feedback via our field engineers and distribution partners in particular to prolonged traction, low wear, and the resulting good quality price ratio”, highlights Angelo Noronha, President Europe at Yokohama Off-Highway Tires.
Following about eight months of mastering everyday challenges with the Alliance Agri Star II, French contractor Olivier Gayet is satisfied. “We have done 1,000 hours of work with these tires, a lot of transport, and we have been able to see that with these Agri Star II we have never had traction problems in terms of grip on the road and in the fields.“ For Gayet, it is important that “thanks to these Agri Star II tires, we have been able to optimise the working time.”
Practical experience in the last four years have given evidence that, whatever the circumstances are in terms of soils, tasks or tractors, the construction of this tire pays off: thanks to the “Stratified Layer Technology (SLT)” developed by Alliance, the footprint of this radial tractor tire evolves throughout its lifetime, thus ensuring prolonged traction. “Comments of end-customers often refer to the good balance between grip and preservation of the soil, efficiency and quality, the level of performance and comfort that is reported to match that of more expensive brands”, Angelo Noronha concludes.
