A couple of weeks ago, Pro Puller Tires had it's debut in Europe! The tractor ran some 20.8R38 tires on a cabin tractor. They ended up in second place and will keep playing with air pressure to gain a winning edge! Here is the video of the tractor making the pass!
Since tractor pulling began, the biggest factor to make the most out of every hook has been the tires. You can have all the horsepower in the world, but if you can't hook it to the track, you will just spin out. As the sport evolved, pullers started to cut tires to make them work more effectively for the purpose of pulling.
When it comes to tractor pulling tires, it seems as though everyone is so concerned about the overall circumference, or "roll-out" of the tire. While the roll-out circumference is definitely an important factor in determining the amount of footprint in the dirt, tire width is even more imperative.
On a 209" Pro Puller at 25" wide, another inch more of circumference (210") adds only 25 square inches. Going from a 24" to a 25" adds a total of 209 square inches per tire! Visit the page below to find an entire explanaition of tire footprint calculations.
