The Alliance Agriflex+ 881—a new, all-steel VF (very high-flexion) radial tire for today's heaviest towed agricultural implements, rated for road speeds up to 40 mph—broadens the line of high-performance VF tires from Alliance Tire America. The Agriflex+ product line uses extremely flexible sidewall technology to improve the load-carrying capacity and reduce soil compaction. The VF tires designated as Alliance Agriflex+ radials can carry as much of a load as a conventional radial tire at 40 percent less inflation pressure, reducing soil compaction force by about 40 percent.
