Special VF casing and bead construction allow for greater flexion and thus operation at lower pressure is possible.
VT-TRACTOR has demonstrated to have a 26% larger lug contact area1
then competitor products.
Lower pressure means VF tyres leave behind a bigger footprint and this results in less soil compaction.
Soil compaction reduces total pore space of a soil, restricting air and water movement. Low soil oxygen levels is the primary factor that limits plant growth.
Lower pressure = bigger footprint = less soil compaction = less rutting
