Magna Tyres Group announced the introduction of the new Magna 24R20.5 AG24 flotation tyre for agri trucks and trailers. Magna has developed this tyre size based on the OBO Transport HD. Achieving the lowest cost per operating hour and maximum reliability were the starting points for the Magna experts to develop a sublime tread pattern and an ultimate tread compound, according to the company.
Long, robust and 24 mm high cleats in the centre, supported by the premium rubber compound, ensure highest wear resistance. Transversely positioned and rounded cleats in the shoulder optimise the self-cleaning and improve rolling under severe conditions. Radial construction offers optimised load performance, low rolling resistance and operator comfort.
The company describes the features of the new range. The lowest cost per operating hour of this tyre is achieved by the robust radial carcass. This tyre can carry 7,500 kg at 65 km/h. The carcass is also suitable for retreading and can last at least a second life, perhaps even a third tyre life. The innovative profile design is the balanced composition of best road and field performances. The transversely positioned, sloping and widening cleats ensure an excellent self-cleaning and therefore a much better rolling ability than conventional profiles. The robust, elongated cleats in the centre of the tread make that the AG24 has minimal rolling resistance. This is not only beneficial for low fuel consumption, but it also ensures that tread wear is minimal.What also contributes to the long service life is the 24 mm high profile- the highest available in the market - and the premium rubber compound that has been specially designed for long service life.
