I had Michelin agribib 18.4 38 and they cracked somethin serious. Worst tyre i ever owned at the end youd o needed the tyre van follow in ye. Looked on bigtyres.co.uk and vredestien looked pretty good tread pattern compared to say trelleborg, what would they be like for grip and last in on road?This size used to be known as 20.8R38. I've got Michelin of that size at the back of my Titan and they have been OK so far. What can I say? Any brand is much of a muchness in this vanilla size. If it is a new tractor, it may be pot luck what it comes with or, possibly for extra cost, a factory order may be possible with a choice of three or four brands depending on availability.
That’s because mich tyres are very soft compound they are lovely to fit , they are dearer fir a reason because they are the best but bkt very close behind.Got 20.8-38 bkt on one tractor here, grip well in the field, but won't grip worth a sh!t on the road. Had 18.4 Mich on it before and never failed a hill with them on.
Oh yeah forgot about kleber. Got set of 16.9 of them already that has done okPeople with a lot of bad luck here regarding tyres. Have a pair of Kleber 18.4’s on a tractor and they are 24 years old, were taken off a tractor at 4 years old and stored til 4 years ago, almost worn out now but never punctured nor cracked.
+1 for Kleber here, got 2 tractors running on them and so far doing better than the Michelin's they replacedLookin advice on 520 85 38 tyres. Dont want michelin agribib as had problems with them crackin b4. Trelleborg 85 series isnt option either. Mabe vredestien or any other suggestions? Not budget brands as its new tractor that friend is lookin at
