Radial Tires for Combines

Michelin’s CerexBib tires for harvesting machines deliver high-flexion capability for the demands of loading, unloading and transport, as well as improved handling and traction for minimal soil compaction. Michelin is the first tire manufacturer in North America to offer a radial that meets the Increased Flexion (IF) classification of the Tire and Rim Association (TRA). Michelin also is the first and only company to offer two tires that meet TRA’s Very High Flexion (VF) classification, meaning they flex up to twice as much as standard tires.

CerexBib tires can be purchased by the axle. The front-axle tires, designated as IF cyclic field operation (CFO) tires, fit on the same rims as normal tires but deliver a bigger footprint and carry the same load at 20% less air pressure. Rear-axle tires are designated as VF. Together, they bear up under large combines and still reduce soil compaction.

CerexBib is available as a replacement tire in the following sizes: front—IF680/85R32 CFO 179A8; IF800/70R32 CFO 182A8; IF800/65R32 CFO 178A8; IF800/70R38 CFO 184A8; IF900/60R38 CFO 184A8; rear—VF520/80R26 165A8; VF620/70R26 170A8.
