Mitas Add Five New Tire Sizes to its Harvester Tire Line

Europe: The renowned tire company, Mitas, has expanded its Cyclic Harvesting Operation (CHO) range of tires with five new tire sizes, wherein, two new tire sizes would be added by December end and the other three tire sizes by the end of first quarter of 2017.

The company’s new CHO tire sizes are designed for multi-usage purposes, such as, grain carts, combine harvesters and many more. Its exclusive construction design is inclined with hexacore technology, steel breakers and flexible sidewalls. Besides that, the tire also allows to carry, comparatively larger loads, even at a lower tire pressure.

As per Product Manager of Mitas agricultural tires, Pavel Kott, “Cyclic loads when filling and emptying corn tanks, for instance, can vary significantly, by more than twice in some cases. At high inflation pressures, this leads uncompromisingly to soil compaction. The solution is a Mitas CHO tire as it is capable of carrying more load at a lower tire pressure. Mitas CHO tires are a popular original fitment preferred by major combine harvester manufacturers. The range extension of CHO tires is a direct response to their needs and tire size specifications and we now offer nine sizes of CHO tires on worldwide markets. An additional three sizes will be released in first quarter of 2017.”

Mitas CHO brand new tires are available in following sizes, i.e., 900/60R42 CHO 183D/186A8 SFT, 900/60R38 CHO 181D/184A8 SFT, 680/80R38 CHO 179D/182A8 SFT (2017), 800/70R42 CHO 182D/185A8 SFT (2017) and 800/70R38 CHO 181D/184A8 SFT (2017).

As per TechSci Research, Mitas tires are gaining popularity all across European region. Also, by launching new tire sizes for harvesting operations, the company, has targeted a specific set of consumers for off-the-road (OTR) tire segment in Europe. Eventually, with the growing demand for the company’s harvesting tires in the region, the sale of Mitas tires is expected to infuse in coming years in Europe.

According to a recent report published by TechSci Research, “Europe Tire Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2021’’, tire market in Europe is projected to cross $49 billion by 2021 on account of anticipated stabilization of crude oil price, expected rise in the vehicle sales and expanding vehicle fleet. The vehicle fleet in the region is dominated by the passenger car segment, followed by the commercial vehicle segment. Consequently, the passenger car tire segment held the largest share in Europe’s tire market in 2015, and its dominance is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Growing per capita income and anticipated increase in the launch of new vehicle models are few of the key factors expected to drive demand for passenger car tires in Europe over the next five years. Though traditional retail stores are the most preferred mode of selling tires in Europe but with the increasing internet penetration & advantages offered by online tire selling websites, car owners in the region are increasingly inclining toward online channels for purchasing tires.
