GRI Adds to its Green Tyre Range
GRI has augmented its agriculture portfolio once again with four new tire sizes to its GREEN EX RT100 Tractor Bias and one new size to its GREEN EX FL800 Flotation Bias ranges.
GRI Adds to its GREEN EX RT100 & FL800 Bias Tyre Ranges
The GREEN EX RT 100 will now be available in the 30.5L-32 size with 18 & 20 PR. As it is specialised for both on and off-road use, its optimised lug angle and distinctive self-cleaning terracing in the space between the lugs enhances the self-cleaning characteristics of the tyre in soft soil and mud.
The tie bar design provides for better lug stability on hard surfaces, while its dual-angle design with steep angles at the center provides rider comfort and better soil cleaning. The shallow angle at its shoulder gives excellent traction in the field, while its strong nylon case ensures optimum durability.
The GREEN EX FL 800 features one of the widest tread footprints in the industry and is now available in the 700/40-22.5 size. This new size has been included into the portfolio, owing to the success and high market demand of the FL 800 pattern. Furthermore, the tyre’s tread design, coupled together with a multi-lug angle, delivers excellent traction on the field and provides exceptional flotation properties. Additionally, the GREEN EX FL800's high centre block-to-lug ratio and wide lug width offer low soil damage and roadability, while its optimum land/sea ratio provides excellent soil cleaning properties and longer life.
