Titan Tire introduces limited edition WHO Tractor Ride Tire

Comfort Ride Center Rib (CRCR) technology promises a smooth ride this year

DES MOINES, Iowa – Titan Tire is pleased to announce the availability of the official WHO Tractor Ride Tire. The limited edition tractor tire is built to commemorate the WHO Radio Great Iowa Tractor Ride, featuring the WHO Big Show and Future Farmers of America (FFA) logos on the sidewall. The tire is designed with Comfort Ride Center Rib (CRCR) Technology, promising a smooth ride for this year’s participants. A portion of all the CRCR tire proceeds will benefit the FFA.

“WHO’s Great Iowa Tractor Ride is a statewide tradition that Iowa farmers look forward to every year,” said Skip Sagar, Iowa sales manager for Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires. “Unfortunately, most rear tractor tires simply aren’t meant to drive 60 miles in a day, and the ride can get pretty uncomfortable after a while. With that thought in mind, we invented CRCR Technology, which is essentially a thick rib running down the center of the tire, connecting all of the lugs, providing more stability, less squirming and allowing for a comfortable ride on hard surfaces for long distances.”

The WHO Tractor Ride Tire is a 6-ply bias, currently available in two sizes — a 12.4-38 and a 13.6-38.

“In addition to providing a more comfortable ride for participants, we wanted to commemorate this great Iowa tradition while providing an additional revenue stream for the FFA. So far, we’ve been very pleased with the positive response,” added Sagar.
