Went to a meeting Friday at the FFA enrichment center at the Ankeny DMACC campus and seen this tire they had on display there. Thought it was kind of neat.

For you guys not in Iowa, WHO radio in Des Moines sponsors a tractor ride every year through the state. The radio station has a show during the noon hour called the "Big Show" just for Ag with markets and so forth.

So Titan actually built a tire specifically for a tractor ride?!!  That's pretty neat!

A friend put those on his tractor ride tractors last fall.  I have no report as of yet.  It is a little early for that.  I assume he has roaded them, but I have not asked for a report.

With that center bar, I can see how the ride might be smoother, but wet surface traction might be an issue also.
