We have BKT ridemax on our broughan silage trailer and I’m very happy with them. Will be replacing with likewise again. They are all pretty low on tread now (trailer is a 2013).

We have lots , BKT ridemax, Michelin cargo bibs, Nokian country kings as well & there is nothing between any of them & maybe £150 diffrance in price from the cheap to the expensive ones , have tried other makers but found them very poor if doing a lot of road work. get them on a 22" wide rim to work best

I thought the nokian would last for ages

I will know tomorrow better it’s for a new build on 10 stud
I was quoted £495 with 10 stud rims for Ceat 560/60r22.5 off my local tyre man. Ended up having to go with Ceat 600/50r22.5 with rims was £630 as not enough clearance from body to get 560"s on

Have a look at vredestien. They last for ages
we fitted 12no 560/60r22.5 vrede a 2years ago to replace BKT's that all failed and although we are big vrede tractor tyre fans the vrede's have all failed in the exact same way as Bkt's.
Currently fitting a mix of michelin trailxbib's that have 5300kg per tyre @ 65kph and nokian ct's @ 5100kg per tyre - we will see if any of these new vF tyres last.
trouble is that up until now all 560/60r22.5's have only been rated at max 4600/4700 ish kg @ 65kph at 5bar up until now.
the new michelin's are rates to 5300kg @ from memory 3bar so hopefully a big difference.
anyone got any issues with trailxbibs or nokian ct as yet?

That’s keen with new rims too? I’ve seen BKT ride max for much the same money without rims. May look into that when ours need changed.

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.

AHDB is now stopping programmes of work that could be restarted in the future by grower associations, individual growers or the supply chain. This work includes for example, export market access and promotional international trade event work, consumer marketing campaigns and market pricing and insight information. AHDB will continue to deliver limited emergency work on pests and diseases, including the Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU)’s and some...
