If you own a tractor then you will eventually need to buy tractor tires. There are at least six different types of tires that are used on tractors. These types include: rear farm tires, front farm tires, industrial farm tires, implement farm tires, specialty farm tires and narrow row crop tires.
Rear farm tractor tires are typically much larger than front farm tires. This gives the tractor better traction and better pushing capacities. Some of the rear tractor tire models available on the market today include the Radial ALL TRAC R-1, the Radial HT LUG R-1, the Radial AT FWD R-1, the Radial FWD HT LUG R-1 and the BIAS Field & Road R-1. When shopping for this type of tire you will want to look at the tread depth and deign and the radius of the tire.
Front farm tractor tires come in a variety of tread depths and designs. The type of tread depth and design that a tire has will impact what type of traction and grip the tire creates. For example a wide tread with large footprints are designed to distribute the weight of a heavy load. Some of the front farm tires on the market today include the Front Backhoe F-3, the Front Backhoe Multi Mile F-3, the Front Farm/Firestone 4 Rib F-2, the Front Farm 3 Rib and the Front Farm Single Rib F-1.
If you are shopping for specialty tractor tires then your best bet is to go to a tire company and have them help you to find the tire that you need. Specialty farm tires are used for farming implements and have design features that are intended to help improve steering and control. Some of the specialty tractor tires on the market today include the Specialty I-3, the Specialty Non-directional Duplex, the Specialty Rib Duplex and the Specialty I-3.
