New agricultural tire offers more even wear and improved stability.

The Titan 14.9R46 Hi Load 8 Star Radial delivers improved tread wear, reduced lug induced vibration and higher load capabilities over standard radials. The lugs have been broadened and buttressed for more even wear, reduced lug flex and improved stability at transport speeds. The lug shoulders are rounded to minimize crop interference in post emergence field work and turf damage during turns. The tire features T-99 tread compound to protect against stubble damage such as tearing, chunking and scarring. The Hi Load Radial's tread-to-void ratio allows a 47 percent higher load capacity over the standard tire.
