Agricultural Tire Compounding 660468

One of the basic principles in tire compounding, is to base all compounds on 100 parts (by weight) of rubber hydrocarbon, and relate the addition of all other compounding ingredients to this base of 100-RHC.
Regarding tread compounds for agricultural tires, major requirements of a rear tractor tire tread are that it have resistance to abrasion (wear), cleat-tearing, and weathering.
With the trend towards larger and higher horsepower tractors, the service-performance demands on tractor tires have increased, necessitating certain design, construction, and compound changes. If this trend continues, further changes will be required, and it is possible that some of the larger tractor tires of the future will more closely approach the present off-the-road type tire.
