Firestone at SIMA International 2013

Innovative tyres and systems for more efficient farming

Bridgestone Europe plans a confident presence with its Firestone branded agricultural tyres at this year’s SIMA International Agri-Business Show in Paris, France, from 24th to 28th February.

The Firestone stand (Hall 5B, stand N° B115) will be well positioned amongst several tractor manufacturers, and will showcase new European-made premium tyres, all contributing to a more efficient and sustainable farming:

The new Maxi Traction IF 800/70R38 is a further expansion of our high load capacity and low soil compaction heavy duty tractors tyres range. Thanks to the larger footprint, this D-speed rated tyre is the ideal candidate to replace your 710/70R42 or 650/85R38 tyres with a more soil-friendly alternative

The new Maxi Traction 800/65R32 tyre for Combine vehicles is the optimal tyre for this segment, combining high efficiency, high load capacity and low soil compaction into one.

With the new Performer 270/95R48 Row Crop tyre, Firestone is entering the sprayer market with tyres featuring outstanding load carrying capacity, high speed index and accurate steering response – a combination of which will certainly enhance your farming efficiency. In order to cover all your sprayer specific needs, further size expansions of the Performer 85-90-95 series are planned in the coming months.
“With these new products, we provide agricultural vehicle operators with high efficient long-life tyres that not only reduce their operating costs, but at the same time contribute to a better environment thanks to their low soil disturbance and compaction as well as their low fuel consumption” says Yves Kerstens, Managing Director, Commercial Business Unit, Bridgestone Europe.

The displayed products in combination with AgriPoint – the Firestone program available to professional independent agricultural tyre dealers – and systems like the Firestone tyre pressure smart-phone application will show our visitors that Firestone brings a complete solution to farmers.
