Sprayer float comparison: Trelleborg vs. Goodyear.

When you’re comparing two different tires on a lot, it’s not very easy to tell which tire is more valuable. Sure, you can see the price tags—but that’s not the value. Even studying spec sheets doesn’t do much good. Price tags and spec sheets don’t tell you which tire will last longer, have less of an impact on fields, or ride smoother.

A recent benchmark test between the Trelleborg IF710/65R46 173D and the Goodyear 800/55R46 178D LSW provides some answers when it comes to sprayer floats. Both tires were mounted on a John Deere JD4045 and tested for several aspects:

  • Load and pressure setting for a field application
  • Footprint and soil disturbance in the field
  • Dimensional information when on concrete
  • Road performance
