According to Tire Business Magazine, Titan states;

“The fact that the public has shown such significant interest in both Extreme Flotation and Low Sidewall (LSW) technologies — both of which are unique to Goodyear — shows that more than a decade of research, development and testing by Titan to bring these new technologies to market is justified,” said Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager for Titan Tire and Goodyear farm tires.

“Now is the time to challenge conventional thinking about farm tire design, and the award shows that farmers agree. They are looking for new technologies that will help them be more productive, and that is what we’re providing. We hope that everyone who has experienced the advantage of LSW will get online and vote.”

Goodyear Optiterra LSW 1000/40R32 & DT930 LSW 1100/45R46

Goodyear’s Optiterra LSW 1000/40R32 front farm tires and DT930 LSW 1100/45R46 rear farm tires increase contact area by nearly 20 percent, according to Titan.

The increased contact area reduces ground-bearing pressure to reduce soil compaction and helps maximize yields. The Extreme Flotation setup has a reduced overall width which results in easier road use and sharper turning. There has been much talk of the LSW technology and it’s advantages out in the field. The Ken Jones Tires Blog has featured a few articles this year on these new options for our customers.
