Mitas tire applications
Radial tire technology delivers substantial benefits to the agricultural industry. The properties of radial tires help farmers achieve better productivity, efficiency and higher yield.
A pneumatic tire in which the ply cords extend to the beads and are laid at alternate angles less than 90° to the center line of the tread.

Agricultural applications – radial tires
We offer a wide range of tires for almost every piece of equipment and application – from high-horsepower tractors to massive harvesters, from field preparation to harvest.
Our extensive line of radial agricultural tires offers solutions to all your needs, from our HC (High Capacity Tires) and SFT (Super Flexion Tires) series or our wide footprint HC 70 and AC 65 series tires to our AC 85 and AC 90 series for row-crop applications.
The development of the SST (Silent Speed Tires), connects the outstanding field characteristics of a 65 series wide tire with high comfort. Because the SST’s noise level in the operator’s cab is reduced to a minimum, the High Capacity Tires. The HC (High Capacity Tires) and SFT (Super Flexion Tires) were developed primarily for powerful machines with over 180 hp. The extremely large volume of air ensures gentle ground handling when working with heavy loads. The new harvester tires HC 3000 and SFT CHO have are designed as extremely powerful tires for large combine harvesters. HC 3000 and SFT CHO are capable of higher maximum loads; at the same time the tire permits gentler ground handling in the field and more comfort on the road. For tractors with up to 200 hp, the Mitas range of radial tires offers a wide selection of all-rounders. The 85 series standard radial AC 85 is ideally suited for wide-ranging applications in the field and on the road. The HC 70, the new wide tire in the 70 series has higher load capacities than other tires in the segment and therefore offers gentler ground handling and heavy load capacity. The AC 65 is a wide tire with a 65% aspect ratio and is the ideal choice in this tractor segment, where it‘s about gentle ground handling and the ability to transport heavy loads, as well as traction and grassland suitability. The AC 70 G is the dedicated grassland tire in the Mitas range. The AC 70 T is particularly suited for heavy field work. In the smaller sizes it has proved itself in vine cultivation and fruit growing.

“L” series type tires
“L” series type tires are used on all size loaders and dozers in off-road applications. Most loader type tires, because of their extremely heavy construction, are limited to very low speeds and very short haul distances, 10km/h and 250 m maximum.
“L” series tires are categorized by number code, type and tread depth.
|Number code||Type||Tread depth|
|L-2||Traction Design||Regular Tread Depth|
|L-3||Rock Design||Regular Tread Depth|
Below are examples of Mitas “L” Series tires
The letter designation and number code is found on the sidewalls of tires. The L-2 traction design tire gives maximum traction in sand and soft soil conditions. The L-3 rock design offers good traction and rock resistance in general purpose loader operations.
These illustrations show different lug to void ratios
Mitas has also developed comparison ratings for “L” series type tires. Note: The numbers are relative ratings with the L-3 tire rated at 100. For example, the L-2 tire has 20 % better traction than the L-3. Certain tire construction features and applications can affect these ratings.
The data below could vary from operation and / or from size to size of tire.
|Traction||Rock resistance||Tread wear||Lug to Void ratio|
|L-2||120||90||90||1 : 1|
|L-3||100||100||100||1 : 2|
