Michelin Agricultural Tires recently introduced the new Michelin VF520/85R42 CFO 177A8 CerexBibT tire. Michelin’s Very High Flexion (VF) tires include a class of agricultural tires designed to handle bigger and heavier farm equipment that has a greater ability to flex under increased loads than standard radials. Designed expressly for large combines and grain carts, the new CerexBib is one of the first true VF tires for today’s heaviest harvesting equipment.
CerexBib, now available at Michelin Ag tire dealers in the Unites States and Canada, offers a more comfortable ride because it:
. functions at a lower pressure,
. provides improved traction in all conditions because of the larger tread footprint,
. delivers excellent service life (even at low pressure) because of a casing with reinforced sidewalls and
. is better for on-road travel because it enables farmers to use a narrower tire to carry the load.
“This new CerexBib offers a massive load capacity, up to21,960 pounds, and has a giant footprint of approximately 486 square inches,” said James Crouch, Michelin farm segment marketing manager. “It is built with Michelin Ultraflex Technology, which enables tires to operate at up to 40% lower air pressure than standard radial tires. This results in a considerable reduction of ruts and compaction, and higher yield potential.”
