Firestone R8000 Severe Service Tractor Tyre
- For agricultural tractors facing the toughest working conditions.
- Excellent for hard, dry, rocky terrain.
- Cut & puncture resistant.
- Better flotation and improved traction.
Firestone creates tyres with the ideal balance of performance and productivity. Superior engineering and refined designs result in improved traction, low soil-compaction, higher load capacity and longer wear. These innovations not only offer you extremely high performance, they save you time, fuel and money. Firestone tyres: an investment that delivers maximum value.
Firestone re-engineered tyre-casing with better flexing-properties result in a bigger footprint, reducing the pressure in the contact-area with the soil.
Low soil-compaction results in more and bigger crops and yield, directly contributing to more profit.
Superior traction achieved through excellent self-cleaning of the lug-pattern allows you to cover more ground faster, saving you time and fuel.
Firestone agricultural products are developed to make farming more efficient. Excellent traction and self-cleaning in combination with the possibility to carry heavier implements or more load result in a significant gain of time. The interesting D/E-speed rated tyres allow you to drive on the road at high speeds, contributing to even more time-savings.
Due to optimised lug- and tread designs, Firestone tyres produce maximum traction in the field and better handling on the road. You can be sure of very accurate steering- and braking response. Renewed tyre-casings offer improved damping-characteristics, contributing to a more comfortable drive without vibrations and road noise. We care about your well-being
Firestone has a wide range of products adapted to each type of cultivation. Narrow row crop tyres are designed to avoid any damage to crops and their roots while being strong enough to cope with the heaviest tanks.
Optimised compounds and a unique tyre-construction in function of the task to be performed make Firestone tyres extremely durable so they last longer.
Flatter and wider threads in combination with an optimised lug design lead to even pressure distribution on the road, resulting in a uniform wear and extended tyre-life. Firestone products keep on performing, even when half-worn out.
Strong and well engineered tyre-casings make it possible to deal with the heaviest loads without compromising your operation-speed. A selected range of patterns with Improved Flexion- or Extra Load-characteristics are developed to fulfill the high load requirements of special farming-applications.
Firestone’s unique Dual Angle Lug technology, as applied in the majority of our products features a special lug design with a distinctive ridge in the lugs.
The special lug design increases traction tremendously while keeping soil-disturbance at an acceptable low level. Firestone products with Dual Angle Lugs deliver 4% more traction than standard tyres. The lug-design features excellent self-cleaning, further increasing the traction properties.
Good self-cleaning of the tyre-pattern improves traction and reduces tyre-slip. Firestone’s unique Dual Angle Lug technology contributes to better self-cleaning of the lug-pattern. Mud does not cling between the lugs, further improving the traction-properties, saving your time, fuel and top-soil.
Improved Flexion-tyres feature a more than standard resistant casing equipped with sidewalls that enable a greater degree of “flexing”. IF-tyres, in general mounted on faster and more powerful tractors contribute to more efficient, versatile and sustainable farming. You can carry more load or carry the same load with reduced tyre-pressures, reducing the negative effects of soil-compaction.
A large number of our tyre-patterns features D/E rated speed-indexes, allowing you to transport heavy loads at high speeds, up to 70 Km/h. Re-engineered tyre-casings with better damping characteristics result in high-speed operation with optimum driving-comfort.
