Leader in VF technology – further sizes added to the already biggest portfolio in the industry / New size of the Alliance 372 VF – flagship tire in VF technology / New size of the Alliance 363 VF row crop – master of on-road drive and low wear / New size of the Alliance 585 – pure versatility for telehandlers, backhoe and compact loaders
With new sizes for three key patterns in the agricultural segment, Alliance – a part of Yokohama Off-Highway Tires – further broadens its already impressively comprehensive tire portfolio. Alliance introduces the new sizes of the following tire ranges: Alliance 372 VF for tractors, Alliance 363 VF row crop for tractors and sprayers, and Alliance 585 for telehandlers backhoe and compact loaders.
“We encounter enormous interest and demand in these tires and work hard to bring them to end-users in all relevant sizes. Seeing these tires appreciated as they are is an impressive confirmation of our strategy”, concludes Angelo Noronha, President Europe at Yokohama Off-Highway Tires.
With altogether 30 available sizes, Alliance 372 VF offers the biggest choice on the market for tractors, combines and harvesters. Following a recent construction upgrade and a new, the most modern stubble guard compound, the tire now comes in the additional size VF 710/60R34. Confirmed by independent research in France, the 372 VF tire range excels in terms of high fuel efficiency, powerful traction, low slip and large footprint, and hence effective soil protection. Performance and total cost of ownership of the Alliance 372 VF make for an unbeatable package with excellent value for money.
Alliance 363 VF features a unique hybrid design specifically developed for tractors and sprayers with an extensive usage on the road driving in between the fields. This high-speed steel-belted tire with the very high flexion technology (VF) is now also available in size 380/105R50 and 480/80R50. Its key feature is low wear and long tire life. Practice reports give clear evidence that the 363 VF row crop tire can last twice as long on roads when compared to standard tread designs – and still delivers perfect traction and self-cleaning characteristics in the field as well as a comfortable ride, low vibration and low noise on the road.
This versatile Agro-Industrial steel-belted tire equally excels on hard surfaces, loose gravel and soil, thus offering the all-in-one choice for challenging surroundings and operations in construction, industry, municipalities, material handling and agriculture. Be it on telehandlers or backhoe and compact loaders: The Alliance 585 is built smart to work efficiently and with ease. The unique tread design, robust construction and proverbial durability characterise this tire as durable specialist for all kinds of challenging operations. This tire is now also available in size 305/70R16.5 and 265/70R16.5
