Irrigation Insight 

Curious about modern technology in the irrigation world? Watch our video to learn about the difference between Bias and Radial pivot tires. 

Key Understandings:

Bias Tires

  • Belt package is put in across the tire bead to bead 
  • It has a rounded profile
  • This tire flexes parallel with the ground

Radial Tires

  • Introduced in 2013
  • Belt package is applied radially, meaning around the tire
  • Has a flat profile 
  • When this tire flexes, it does so vertically (this allows less dirt and mud go be pushed out, which creates a wider rut)
