Bridgestone premium VT-TRACTOR tyres

For more efficient and sustainable agriculture

Bridgestone VT Tractor Tyres

With its “very high flexion” (VF) construction and advanced tread design, the Bridgestone VT-TRACTOR tyre, compared to standard tyres, can operate at lower inflation pressures, with larger footprints, helping farmers to harvest greater yields, work faster, carry heavier loads and consume less fuel – all while protecting the soil.

Higher yield with less soil compaction

Thanks to its special bead profile, Bridgestone VT-TRACTOR allows greater flexing at lower inflation pressures than standard and “improved flexion” (IF) tyres. This very-high flexion (VF) at lower operating pressure (12 PSI) leaves a larger footprint, reducing soil compaction and helping to increase harvest yield, year after year.

Bridgestone VT Tractor Tyres - Reduced Compaction

Superior traction for increased productivity

Bridgestone applied a new lug design to VT-TRACTOR which minimises slip and soil disturbance, providing superior traction and thus a faster work rate in the field.

Lower operating costs

This superior traction reduces operating costs further through fuel savings in the field. Compared to competitors’ tyres operating at 15 PSI pressure, the Bridgestone VF tyre at 12 PSI pressure brings fuel savings of up to 36 litres / 50 hectares.
Bridgestone VT-TRACTOR can also carry loads up to 40% heavier than standard tyres, at the same speed. This means fewer transport cycles on the road, leading to further reductions in operating costs.

More efficiencies

With Bridgestone VT-TRACTOR, farmers also save time because they don’t have to stop and change tyre pressure when moving from the field to the road and back. In addition, VT- TRACTOR tyres make vehicle handling easier and more comfortable – important bonuses in a long, hard day’s work. The more flexible sidewall design absorbs road surface bumps, while the pattern’s longer lugs offer a smoother drive.
