From 7th to 11th November 2018, Alliance Tire Group will use EIMA at Bologna to showcase some of the manufacturer’s outstanding tires for agricultural, horticultural and municipal uses. As a leading innovator in IF and VF tire technology, Alliance Tire Group will display a high-performance Very High Flexion tire: Alliance 372 Agriflex+. With the Alliance Agristar 365 and the Alliance Multiuse 550, a true draught horse for high performance tractors and a clear master of versatility will also be presented. The tire collection on display will be completed by the Galaxy LDSR 300 as innovative and robust tire for wheel loaders which offers superior traction.

“ATG’s Alliance and Galaxy tires have steadily made strong inroads into the Italian OE and aftermarket in the last few years, and we are proud to see our tires on many of the OE machines on display at EIMA. At ATG, we are committed to continuously providing cutting edge technology tires for the widest range of applications and with an unbeatable value proposition for our dealers and discerning end users”, says Ganesh Iyer, Head of Sales South Europe at ATG.

Agriflex+ and Agristar – performance and soil protection at its best

Alliance 372 Agriflex+ in size 710/75R42 is a large volume tire for harvesters, large tractors, wagons and self-propelled spreaders that allows to efficiently protect the soil against compaction whilst moving heavy loads and large machinery. 40 percent higher load carrying capacity at standard inflation pressure, or the standard load carrying capacity with 40 percent lower inflation pressure, highlight the clear advantages of Very High Flexion (VF) tires. VF tires of Alliance are characterised by special materials and construction, both allowing for much greater flexibility with less heat build-up, thus avoiding potential damage during soil conserving low-pressure operations in the field. The large footprint of the tire pattern provides excellent traction and a clear increase in overall productivity whilst high lug angles ensure a smooth and comfortable ride also at high speeds.

Excellent traction, very comfortable ride, optimum soil protection and efficient self-cleaning are some of the characteristics of the Alliance Agristar 365, a high-performance draught horse for high horse power tractors. The modern lug design ensures outstanding traction, the stable carcass is a guarantor for excellent ride comfort and long service life whilst the large footprint and the lower inflation pressure ensure the protection of precious soils. Selected sizes of the Alliance Agristar 365 are also available as high-speed tires for up to 65 kph. At EIMA, size 650/65R38 171D will be on display.

Versatility and robustness in perfection

The Alliance Multiuse 550, on display at EIMA in size 460/70R24, is a perfect tire for all businesses or municipalities which operate machinery year in, year out under varying conditions. Ice or snow, operations on roads and municipal greens as well as industrial areas – the Alliance Multiuse 550 excels under all conditions. Whilst side lugs ensure excellent traction on loose ground, the centre lugs provide low rolling resistance on the road. The new carcass reduces vibrations and noise generation, and the steel belt provides effective protection against punctures. Thanks to its new rubber composition, the Multiuse 550 offers outstanding performance along with massive traction also at low temperatures and on ice or snow. At the same time, the special tread and lug design as well as the large contact area ensure a short braking distance even on slippery surfaces. The Alliance Multiuse 550 is the perfect all-rounder for any season.

Specifically developed as innovative tire for wheel loaders, the Galaxy LDSR 300 delivers top performance also under most adverse conditions. Outstanding stability and robustness characterise this tire and allow for reliably handling heavy loads. Thanks to its sturdy radial construction and strong sidewall protection, this tire offers superior endurance and strength, thus delivering convincing results also under most challenging conditions. In addition, the high-quality mixture of tread compounds effectively protects the tread against lug-tearing and chunking whilst the special “S-shaped” tread pattern provides reliable traction and self-cleaning characteristics. At EIMA, the Galaxy LDSR 300 will be displayed in size 20.5R.
