Alliance Launch Agri Star II at Lamma

Alliance-Tyre

Alliance Tire Group recently launched a brand-new radial tractor tyre in the form of the AGRI STAR II.

Agri Star II Presented at LAMMA

The tyre was designed in close cooperation with farmers and dealers in order to ensure the top performance in the field and on the road. The AGRI STAR features a unique Stratified Layer Technology (SLT) developed by Alliance engineers. Following the presentation at LAMMA in the UK, the full tyre range will be launched globally later in January. The AGRI STAR II will be available in 76 SKUs across the 70-s and 85-series, including specific sizes and various load indexes, which covers the market needs almost up to 100%. 

The Stratified Layer Technology (SLT) is a combination of multi-angle lugs for good traction even after a prolonged wear and better overall performance. Every tyre lug consists of 2 layers: The top layer has a single angle profile and the bottom layer – a multi-angle profile. When the top layer is worn out (after 40% of general wear), the bottom layer comes into action – the lug changes its geometry and ensures excellent traction again – as it was a completely new tyre

Additionally, to the long quality life and high traction, the SLT lug combination provides a much better on-road performance and higher resistance to the on-road wear, improved anti-skidding and braking capabilities, as well as great self-cleaning properties throughout the entire tyre life. 

AGRI STAR II is characterised by a higher rubber volume, enhanced stiffness, larger ground contact area and increased front wall surface area. Internal comparative tests show that due to the premium tread compound, this tyre has a more efficient stubble damage resistance and is superb at cut & chip resistance. The speed rating is increased to level D (65 km/h) – which is higher than standard 70-series tyres.
