Prague, Czech Republic - Mitas Tires is introducing Mitas-brand tyres in 13 sizes for use in row-crop agriculture.
Off-road tyre producer Mitas of the CGS Group announced that in 2011 the company will introduce to the worldwide markets a new Mitas-branded range of tyres for use in row-crop agriculture. The tyre line will extend and improve existing Continental-brand row-crop tyres, which Mitas has been producing under licence since 2004.
As of June 1, eight Mitas row-crop sizes are available for sale. By the end of 2011, Mitas will produce 13 row-crop tyre sizes including five new sizes: 270/95 R32, 300/95 R46, 320/85 R34, 320/90 R50 and 320/90 R54. Additional sizes are slated for early 2012.
â€œMitas brings a quality product to the row-crop tyre market which is often neglected by major tyre brands,â€ said Andrew Mabin, Mitas marketing and sales director. â€œUnder AC85 and AC90 names, Mitas will offer 13 tyre sizes to meet farmers' needs in row-crop agriculture.â€
Mitas, a subsidiary of CGS Tyres in Prague, Czech Republic, produces Mitas- and Cultor-brand ag and industrial tyres. The company is building a radial farm tyre plant in Charles City that's expected to be completed by early 2012.
