Yokohama Off-Highway Tires announces the launch of yet two more sizes of its much sought-after radial tractor tire Alliance Agri Star II. With immediate effect, sizes 800/70R38 and 210/95R18 are now available, bringing the total number of SKUs in this tire range to 89. “It is with enormous pride that we see customers’ appreciation across different markets such as Germany, France, Spain, Italy or the Netherlands. We receive highly positive feedback via our field engineers and distribution partners in particular to prolonged traction, low wear, and the resulting excellent quality price ratio”, highlights Angelo Noronha, President Europe at Yokohama Off-Highway Tires.
Latest feedback from France: 8 months of Agri Star ll
Following about eight months of mastering everyday challenges with the Alliance Agri Star II, French contractor Olivier Gayet is more than satisfied. “We have done 1000 hours of work with them, a lot of transport, and we have been able to see that with these Agri Star II tires, we have never had any traction problems in terms of grip on the road and in the fields.“ For him, it is particularly important and remarkable that “thanks to these Agri Star II tires, we have been able to optimise the working time.”
Practical experience in the last four years have given solid evidence that – whatever the circumstances are in terms of soils, tasks or tractors – the construction of this tire pays off: thanks to the unique Stratified Layer Technology (SLT) developed by Alliance, the footprint of this radial tractor tire evolves throughout its lifetime, thus ensuring prolonged traction. “Comments of end-customers often refer to the good balance between grip and preservation of the soil, efficiency and quality, the level of performance and comfort that is reported to match that of more expensive brands”, says Angelo Noronha.
