I made a thread not too long back about Trelleborg vs Michelin and the opinions were very 50/50.... Think I'm going to run them on a new tractor and see how they're holding up after 2 years till we change another and may end up with Michelins....

I will never have another set of trelleborg if I can help it. Very uneven tyre wear horrendous on the road for comfort and noise.

Pretty much the standard here if you do decent road milage and don't do much changing of pressure (which tends to be the case for contractors overhere). But then again at least 75 % of those users will run a tm800 which gotta be at least a 20 year old series, so if there are problems with other series I might just not be all that well informed.

Only ever had one set of trelleborg tyres and I hope its the only set I ever have. Had to scrap them at around 40% because of the side walls cracking just behind the lugs.
Constantly plagued with burst's
Had said tractor out bringing machinery back home and within an hr I had 3 flat tyres- that was the end of my trelleborg experience.

I’ve got 710-75R42 and 650-65R34 Trelleborg tyres on a 500 hr 936 and at low speeds they shake the tractor. If you have any weight on the tractor the problem is amplified and quite frankly unacceptable.

Similar problem to what I'm having certain weights make it shake and at different speeds had one tyre that had 2 lugs 50% worn then the one next to it was like new. Trelleborg rep said there was nothing wrong with it.

They are Shyte, Fendt fit them as standard, I paid for Michelin’s on the 936’s, have bought some secondhand Fendts with trelleborgs and the sidewalls are cracking on both and leaking air with 50% tread left, junkkkkkkkkk.

Having to get rid of a tyre on 40_50% isnt an issue IF they have done a decent amount of hours and out lasted a softer compound tyre.

How many hours had they done?

So if a Michelin and trellberg cost the same, but at 3000 hrs the Michelin is bald but the trellberg has 40 % but sidewalls have gone.
Which is the best tyre?
The one that still has 40% and hasn't got cracked sidewalls.....

Think it's called the bkt? 🙄😂

Had to change a set of 40% tm700 last year because they were cracked at every lug. Mind you, they were 9 year old....

BKT s are being taken off locally at 30-40% because they just will not grip.
Local firm has stopped recommending them for that reason.

Tyres is a compromise between wear and flex.
Hard and they wear well but dont flex.
Soft and they wear out but don't crack.
 

Could a ‘Meat Tax’ be on the cards in the UK?

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
