Destination Farm Radial Implement Tires

02/04/2013 @ 2:57pm

Bridgestone announced the launch of the new Firestone Destination Farm radial implement tires. The new tires are designed with Advanced Deflection Design (AD2) technology to reduce compaction.

“Producers are often forced to use tires made for trucks or buses on heavy-pull type implements,” said Tom Rodgers with Firestone. “This tire was created specifically with agricultural needs in mind. By utilizing our AD2 technology, the Destination Farm tires leave a larger footprint with less soil compaction.”

The new tires are available in increased flexion (IF) and very-high flexion (VF) designations. Added performance benefits of the new tires include:

  • IF-designated tires offer up to 20% more load-carrying capacity or the same load at lower pressure
  • VF-designated tires offer up to 40% more load-carrying capacity or the same load at a lower pressure
  • Reduced soil compaction because of the lower air pressure
  • Wider section width for more contact area
  • Steel belts for improved resistance of stubble penetration
  • Soil-friendly tread design
