Vredestein Traxion 65: Silent tractor tyre now available in 19 sizes



Vredestein is significantly expanding its Vredestein Traxion 65 tractor tyre series, which was first introduced at the Agritechnica 2019. Fifteen sizes have now been added as Vredestein now covers the complete range from 16 to 42 inches. All 19 tyres are available for the aftermarket and various tractor brands are offering them factory fitted.


The Traxion 65 series is Vredestein’s follow-up on the popular Traxion+ and was redesigned using the latest technologies developed for the Vredestein Traxion Optimall VF. Features that have comprehensively proven themselves in practice have been retained, including the curved lugs and the large contact area in the middle of the tread.


Very quiet
The large contact area of the Traxion 65 offers unparalleled driving comfort and ensures that the tyre is exceptionally quiet. Tests carried out on the RDW test track (ISO certified: ISO10844:2014) showed that noise levels in the cabin are no less than 29% than one of Vredestein’s main premium competitors. The implications for the comfort levels of tractor drivers who often spend extended periods behind the wheel are obvious, while a pass-by noise reduction of 22% compared to the competitor tyre offers clear benefits for the general public too.


Pulling power
Vredestein's renowned curved lug is almost perpendicular to the direction of travel, giving the Traxion 65 an impressive pulling power. As the distance from the centre to the side between the lugs increases at the end, the tyre has a very good self-cleaning ability, especially on heavy soils. This ensures that the tyre keeps the traction and reduces the amount of mud left on the road. The combination of the unique tread compound with the unique profile ensures a lifespan that is at least 30% longer than the Traxion 65’s premium competitors.
