Make sure that you don’t select tires that will impact your
yield in a negative way. Flotation tires are needed to avoid
or at least reduce the negative impact of soil compaction.
Make sure that also your trailers have flotation tires so that they don’t impact your yield in a negative way. Flotation tires give you lower surface pressure. Without proper agricultural trailer tires, you can end up getting stuck or impacting the topsoil level.
Check the full range of agricultural tires to assess, which
tires are best for your equipment and for your loads. Modern tires need to
cater for heavier machines and higher equipment utilization, which means that
you will need to make sure that your tires can handle the higher workload with
minimum downtime and costly maintenance that will impact your profitability.
There is a reason why you need to invest in good bus and truck tires and that is because these tires are meant to be driving long distances on highway roads to ensure that products and goods are deliver across the nation. There is a lot of pressure that products should be delivered on time, as the supply chain often depends on very timely deliveries and if deliveries are late it starts a chain reaction of more late goods. Trucks are often driven as much as the drivers are legally allowed to drive them. The rigs are expensive to buy and they need to generate as much income as possible during its lifetime and the more the truck is utilized the faster the payback time will be.
To ensure high utilization of the truck you need to ensure
that the tires that are used are up for the challenge of being driven almost
continuously with minimum problems. Durable wear resistance longhaul tires that can provide
sufficient grip and can handle the heavy loads. Low rolling resistance will allow
you to save you money on fuel as your trucks are driven. This also reduces the
CO2 emissions, so that you can lower the carbon footprint of your truck driving
operations that might not seem like the most environmental industries. Since
you have different tires on the different positions of the truck, it is
important all of them are of high quality and that you can maintain them
properly. A big problem with tires is that tires explode mainly due to low tire
pressure that ultimately causes the tire to shred to pieces. So checking the
tread depth and the tire pressure becomes a key task for making sure that your
operation will proceed at a highly efficient level.
For improved tire economy, if you purchase high quality
truck tires initially, you can have them retreaded up to 2 times, if the
carcass remains in good condition once the initial tread has worn down to below
4 mm tread depth. Retreaded tireswill have the same grip and road properties as the original tire.
This is a great way to save costs and allow for a more environmental approach
as you can reuse the carcass instead of waste it. Minimizing waste should
always be prioritized in addition to costs savings. For

To make sure that you don’t impact the yield negatively through soil compaction, which has been proven to have a very significant reduction on the yield of most crops. Today’s farming has gotten much more specialized and heavier equipment is nowadays used which require tires that can cope with these heavier machines. To ensure that you keep a high productivity and yield you need to make sure that both your tractor and your trailer tires are of flotation tire type, so that their impact on the surface is less than traditional tires. Since the surface impact can cause compaction of the soil, it negatively impacts your yield. This is the reason why you will need to use flotation tires on all the heavy equipment that will be used while driving on the field.
tires are also good while driving on roads between fields or undertaking
contracting work. There are a few different models to choose from depending on
if you plan to spend more time on the roads than on fields or vice versa, as
the roads will wear out the tires too fast if the wrong selection is done. For
the optimal selection of agricultural tires, visit the technical
that will show the full range of tires that can be used for the various
machines and trailers. This will help you both select the correct tire based on
the circumstances and make sure that tire is available in the dimensions that
you need. You also need to check if the loads intended are in line with the
limitations of the tire.
optimal performance you always need to balance between making sure that you
make the optimal tire selection and that you use the tire in its intended way. You
also need to make sure that you undertake proper maintenance of the tires so
that they will last as long as expected. Check for abnormal tire wear and any
cuts or cracks and change the tires when the tread depths start approaching the
lower allowed limit. It is always better to be proactive in changing than being
reactive and changing when you already end up with costly tire problems, that
can delay work and require additional help to fix the problem. Make sure that
you keep the productivity and profitability at a high level.
Forest work will always involve harsh environment and conditions. So you will need both to have state of the art equipment that will not break down in the middle of the forest and combine that with ultra durable forest tires that will ensure that you don’t get stuck or have tire problems. If you get stuck you will need another machine that is able to pull you loose, which puts even more pressure on that machine’s tires to have sufficient grip for this, this is why you need proper forest tires so that you will have sufficient trip and traction for the conditions that you will work in.
In the forest you will face slippery rocks and hills covered
in moss making them very slippery, this is why you will need tires that can
also use tracks or chains to increase the grip when needed. Regardless if you
need skidder tires or harvester tires, you will need them to be extremely durable, so
that they don’t cut or crack under the pressure of the heavy loads or the steel
fortified carcass to ensure that the rocks or stubs don’t puncture the tires. The
tread design is also optimized to be self-cleaning and high load bearing
You should always aim to have long trouble free service
life, to both save costs and increase productivity. When you work with only a
harvester and a forwarder using the cut-to-length method you will only need 2
persons working in the woods, so despite higher investment costs and higher
skill level, you tend to save money due to lower labor costs, as you need less
people working. The workers tend to also be safer as they are in protected cabs
When it comes to harvester tires, you should consider the
Nokian Forest King F, which is a perfect choice when you will need tracks, but
the tire also has excellent grip without tracks. The wide area also limits the
contact pressure, which makes it gentle on the environment. When you will need
to attach chains or tracks they fit easily and provide extra grip to the tires,
so that you can reach trees even on the steepest hills even if they are very
slippery. This is a tire that focuses on stability and productivity in
demanding forestry use.
Within the big shipping and container terminals you tend to have a combination of tracked cranes as well as rubber tired gantry cranes and straddle carriers. You also have in addition to all the trucks and trailers, a lot of terminal tractors and loaders and stackers. Most of the machines need to be able to carry very heavy loads and need precise driving response. For the truck and trailer tires, these tend to be haul tires and are low wear tires that you get you through the long distances without problems.
When carrying heavy loads, tire failures could cause major
problems and damages, that is why it is important to select tires that can
handle heavy loads and still have high wear resistance. Despite quite similar
looking equipment they might still need very different tires and properties. A
telescopic loader will have very different tires than a reach stacker, so the
tire selection process is critical. You might first wan to assess the technical tire manual to ensure that you find the correct RTG tires and the correct terminal tractor tires.
In the technical tire manual you can find all the necessary
information regarding all the tires for materials handling, so that you can
make sure that you find right tire for the right equipment and the right use
case. Since tire selection is so important to ensure that you eliminate
problems and get the necessary properties that you will need. For ensuring that
the terminals reach their targets of reduced operational productivity and
reduced delays, tire related problems should be avoided through proper tire
Tire maintenance that thoroughly checks the tires and plans
for their replacement as they wear out and check for cracks or cuts. The more
that you can detect during the scheduled maintenance and thus avoid having to
do unscheduled maintenance, the more time and money you will save in your
operations. Having to deal with problems that can also cause costly delays.
Goods often need to be delivered within short timelines and from the ports or
terminals they often still have a long way to travel, so the faster they can be
loaded on the right trucks for further delivery, the better it is. So as
mentioned already, use the tire manual to check for the optimal tires so that
you can operate smoothly.
When you are driving around with a bus full of passengers, you want to make sure that you can get them to their end destination safely and on time. Problems that can cause delays can cause your passengers a lot of problems. Having a bus full of angry passengers due to engine or tire problems is not an easy situation to solve. This is why having problem free buses and tires are gold worth.
Investing in bus tires that can last and be
durable enough to withstand impacts from curbs or potholes are really
important, to ensure that you can run the buses on time and to follow a
reliable schedule without causing delays to your passengers. There are a lot of
tires on the market for the same application, however all tires are not the
same, so you will need to assure that you get what fits you the best. Cheaper
and lower quality tires will quickly become more expensive when you have to run
buses on time and knowing that any downtime will be very expensive due to
Some buses might also need to be equipped with winter tires
for buses. Tires that are approved and tested for winter conditions will have
the 3PMSF symbol on the sidewall of the
tires and will ensure that you can drive safely even though you have winter
weather. Some countries might require this by law, while others might just
recommended it. However if you want to
make sure that your passengers arrive safely and on time even in winter
conditions, you just have to get winter tires to your buses. Driving with tires
that are not approved for winter conditions when you have full-fledged winter
outside, it is irresponsible to even try to drive.
Tires that are not designed for winter conditions will not
have the sufficient grip during these conditions. The biggest problem with
tires that are not designed for winter conditions is that the rubber compound
gets hard and will not conform to the surface. This means that the rubber will
not be squeezed into the small holes on the road surface, this is an important
part of creating the friction needed to make sure that you have sufficient
braking distance and lateral grip when you drive.
Since most trucks are built to drive long distances delivering goods using the land based highways. Deliveries can often be perishable goods or then products for just in time deliveries. Delays can therefor be costly both for the transporter as well as the end-user. This is why the transporters have to rely on both their trucks and their tires to make sure that they are built to last and don’t brake down. The biggest problem tends to be problems related to the truck tires and often caused by low tire pressure. Since trucks have so many tires, checking all the tires for the correct tire pressure can be a bit tedious, especially for the inner tire of the dual tires.
Optimally you can manage to prevent most of your problems
with proper scheduled maintenance. During this maintenance you will need to
make sure that all tires have the correct tread depth and the correct tire
pressure. It is however often the trailers that the trucks pick up at ports or
terminals that can cause the problems as they might arrive with tires with low
pressure and often the tight delivery schedules doesn’t allow of stops where
all the tires can be checked, or the drivers are not very willing to engage in
The problem when you drive with low tire pressure is that
you can damage the tires, especially the sidewalls. If you ruin the carcass you
will also not be able to retread the tires. Retreaded tires can save you a lot of money. A good quality tire
where the carcass is till in good condition after the tire is worn out, can be
retreaded 1 to 2 times.
For trucks it is also important to take care of changing
tires to winter tires when the weather changes to winter conditions. Some
countries it is mandatory to use winter tires, in other countries it is only
recommended. It is always advisable to drive in the safest possible way, to
ensure that the goods are delivered on time. If you don’t have winter-approved
tires on your truck and you have a snow storm hitting your area, you can more
or less forget about getting the delivery to the end destination on time. Here
you will need a tire that is designed for these conditions and has been tested
and approved for winter use.
When you need tires for your trailer that can handle the load and are wear resistant, you might need a set of Nokian CT tires. This is the ultimate trailer tire for earthmoving applications as well as agriculture trailers, where you need a flotation tire to reduce the soil compaction. These tires can definitely handle the heavy loads.
In agricultural applications it is always important that you
damage the soil as little as possible. Having the proper tires that limit the
surface pressure like the flotation tires, will allow for a higher yield. The
Nokian CT tires are extremely durable and allow for service free operating
hours with self-cleaning treads. These tires will have an expected operating
lifetime of 100.000km. With its asymmetric tread block design, gives you a
smooth drive on roads, as you always have block contact with the road surface.
It’s cut and crack resistant compound combined with that it
is steel fortified with multiple steel cords in layers allows this tire to be
very puncture resistant. So regardless if you will spend a lot of time on or
off the road, these tires will give you the ultimate driving experience and
durability. So even if you do a lot of contracting and have to spend a lot of
time on the road driving between sites, your tire will last and will not wear
Companies always want to avoid problems that cause downtime.
Optimizing operating hours and being able to manage with scheduled maintenance
to keep the unscheduled maintenance at a minimum saves a lot of money for any
operator. It also increases the productivity, so regardless if you are using
these tires in earthmoving trailer applications or as agricultural trailer tires it will
be an excellent choice. They will be able to handle the load and will give you
a maximum out output hours without problems and with minimum surface pressure.
By checking the Nokian Tyres technical tire manual, you will get more information regarding
the full range of flotation tires that they have as well as other tires for
earthmoving and agricultural equipment. You can assess what loads they can
handle and what tire pressure you should have. You can also find the different
dimensions so that you are sure that you fit your equipment with the correct
The challenge of getting stuck when plowing, can be a problem, as you will need another tractor to pull you out from there. Often this scenario can be avoided by using flotation tires that float on top of the surface instead of sinking into the top layer. In addition the compaction that can happen when you don’t use flotation tires can reduce your yield due to soil compaction. Selecting the right tires can have a big impact on your output and your costs, as you will need to make sure that your equipment are running with minimum downtime and problems.
The flotation tires are wider and are often used as agriculture tires. They can distribute
the pressure to a larger area, so that the heavy equipment doesn’t destroy the
top layer of the soil. The tread is designed to both give you traction and
stability combined with a comfortable driving experience. Tractors often need
to be good for driving both on and off field, where the off field includes a
lot of road driving. Depending on your tractor use and how your fields are
placed and if you do additional contracting you need to select tires that are
optimized for your use case. If you make the wrong selection you will wear out
your tires too quickly.
You also need to select the right agricultural trailer tires. You
will most likely benefit of using flotation tires on your trailers as well, to
ensure that you have minimum soil compaction. You will need to take any steps
to ensure that you have the highest yield possible for your operation. That
includes taking every step to minimize the soil compaction and other areas that
might limit your yield. You can find the best tires in the technical tire
manual, where you can also find the proper tire pressure for the tires.
High quality tires will have low rolling resistance,
ensuring that you minimize your fuel costs as well as lower CO2
emissions. Environmental friendly agricultural business is becoming
increasingly more important. Low tire wear is also of essence, so that you
don’t have to invest in new tires more often than necessary. Investing in tires
that have low impact on your soil and has low degree of problems so that you
can maximize the up time, will add profits to your operations.
most trucks tend to drive very long distances, there will be a lot of tire
wear. You will need to purchase high quality truck tires. High quality truck tires will have lower rolling
resistance and thus lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
High quality tires can be retreaded up to 2 times if the carcass is in good condition once the tread has worn out. This has a positive environmental impact as you reduce tire waste, by reusing the carcass. Significant costs savings can be obtained by retreading the tires. Retreaded have excellent properties if the new tread is of good quality.
