Goodyear LSW is Great for Farmers Bottom Line!

Titan International released the results of their first planting study on Goodyear® Farm Tire Low Sidewall (LSW®) Technology™ as it affects yield and fuel consumption. Goodyear LSW Super Single tires were tested against Michelin standard duals in corn and soybean crops.

$16 per acre advantage with LSW Tires

Results from the corn harvest showed that the test plot with the Goodyear LSW Super Singles yielded 5 bushels more per acre compared to the Michelin duals.

5% Savings on Fuel Cost

In addition to the increased crop yield, the study also showed a 5% reduction in fuel costs.
