By presenting a VF tire for high-powered tractors, the Indian Ceat is attacking the market for very large high-powered tractors and self-propelled machines.
With the Torquemax 850/75R42 IF CFO SB, the largest tire offered in the Ceat range but also one of the largest on the market with a diameter of 2.30 meters, the Indian once again demonstrates its capabilities and speed. to adapt to the European market. But what sets it apart from competing tires is its intelligent i-Tyre technology designed with the Israeli Galileo Wheel and which already equips truck fleets. An in-tire sensor monitors pressure and temperature in real time to ensure correct pressure in a wide range of applications. Ceat therefore hopes to offer the widest possible footprint, the maximum traction taking into account the loads and speeds, to preserve not only the tires but also the equipment and the user.
