Let’s start with the outer dimensions of the tires. Here, the key parameters are the tire width and its outer diameter. If we measure the tires according to their outer diameter, the titleholder would be the 710/75R42 from the SFT (Super Flexion Tire) family that boasts a diameter of 2 171 mm. This is a tire with very flexible sidewalls and a high load capacity that you might meet primarily on modern, high-horsepower tractors and harvesting machinery. And this tire is genuinely hard to miss – at over two meters, it is a lot taller than the average adult.
On the other hand, in terms of width the 1250/50R32 SFT, at over one meter, 1 220 mm to be exact, excels. Width has become very important for modern agricultural tires, as it helps spread the weight of the agricultural machinery and thus reduces the pressure exerted on the soil.
If we combine the two categories, meaning height and width, we get a clear champion – thanks to its outer diameter of 2 150 mm and width of 860 mm, this is the 900/60R42, once again from the SFT tires group. We can thus say that this is the largest Mitas agricultural tire overall.
It is no coincidence that we find the size recordholders among the radial SFT tires. The dimensions of agricultural tires have been generally growing alongside those of the agricultural machines themselves in recent years, and the SFT tires are specially designed for the most modern of them.
