Tractor tyre selection

Synopsis 

Tractor tyre specification is a key element in achieving fuel efficiency. Factors to be considered include tread, diameter, width, rim size, load indexes, single/double/triple arrangements and typical operating speeds. The wrong tyres may make it difficult or impossible to implement other fuel efficiency measures. Larger tyres spread weight and enable operation at lower and a wider range of pressures.
