Tractor tyres are just as important for safety as they are for keeping your tractor out in the field and working rather than broken down in the shed or barn. Without the proper care or maintenance, you’ll find yourself replacing your tractor tyres a lot more often. Here are some tips for extending the life of your tractor tyres:

Make sure you know the load on your tractor and be sure to adjust your tyre inflation appropriately. If you aren’t sure exactly how much your tractor weighs, you can stop in at Wealden Tyres and have them advise you, which will allow you to purchase the proper tractor tyres and inflate them to precisely the right air pressure. This is especially important at the beginning of the season when your tractor may have been used less over the winter. Having the proper inflation on your tractor tyres will ensure not only that you get the traction you need, but also the best performance possible. You don’t use as much fuel when your tyres are inflated properly.

It’s also important to remember that the specific tractor tyres you have are not what makes your tractor especially efficient. It’s all about the fine details associated with how much air pressure you have inside of your tyres. If it’s just right, you’ll be able to be much more productive and get your work done much faster than you would imagine. The correct tyre inflation will change from activity to activity, so find out from the experts exactly which tyre inflation you should be using for each activity. With tractor tyres, unlike car tyres, the proper air pressure to use is not necessarily what’s printed on the sidewall of the tyre.

If you’re still experiencing difficulties with your tractor tyres not giving you the performance you need, you should consider ballasting your tractor to help solve minor problems that can make a big difference in the overall performance of your tractor. Most manufacturers offer information on the best way to ballast their particular tractor, so it’s important to find out what works with the specific tractor you have.

Caring for tractor tyres is an exact science that can’t be learn overnight, so it helps to have an expert you can rely on to explain the finer points of how to get the best performance out of your tractor. Wealden Tyres offers complete service for agricultural and tractor tyres in the Sussex and Kent areas of the UK.
