Firestone Takes It Tread to Tread
Jun 04, 2009
When the tires underneath your horsepower are top of mind, there is a new information site that might be of interest.
Firestone organized side-by-side tractor tire traction demonstrations with the Firestone 23° R-1 and the Michelin Agribib 45° R-1W. The results are available here: www.treadtotread.com
The two tractors ran in the same field, at the same time, pulling the same load. At the end of one run, the tractors exchanged rear tires and then ran again. Switching around the tires was their way of assuring that the demo results rode solely on the performance of the tires and not on a difference between the two tractors.
