Michelin North America, headquartered in Greenville, introduced the new Michelin VF520/85R42 CFO 177A8 CerexBib tire at the 2016 Commodity Classic. The Very High Flexion (VF) tires from Michelin Agricultural Tires include a class of agricultural tires designed to handle bigger and heavier farm equipment that has the ability to flex under increased loads than standard radials. Designed expressly for large combines and grain carts, the new CerexBib is one of the first VF tires for today’s heaviest harvesting equipment.

“This new CerexBib offers a massive load capacity, up to 21,960 pounds, and has a giant footprint of approximately 486 square inches,” said James Crouch, Michelin farm segment marketing manager. “It is built with Michelin Ultraflex Technology, which enables tires to operate at up to 40 percent lower air pressure than standard radial tires. This results in a considerable reduction of ruts and compaction, and higher yield potential.”

CerexBib is now available at Michelin AG tire dealers in the U.S. and Canada.
