Alliance 389VF: finally also trailers, sprayers and spreaders can run with flotation VF technology.

A new season is about to start: field preparation, planting, seeding, spraying, harvesting, transporting crops and ploughing. Alliance Very High Flexion tires are the best partner farmers and contractor could rely on when it’s time to protect their soil and optimize their crop while carrying heavy loads.

Alliance is the only brand offering a concrete solution for soil protection while pulling trailers, sprayers and spreaders. Before the launch of Alliance 389VF, farmers used to drive their tractors fitted with VF tires in order to reduce the soil compaction, but any benefit was then unavoidably ruined when a trailer equipped with standard tires was passing over the same ground. Now, thanks to the combination of flotation and VF features, the ground has maximum protection ever while carrying the same load at 30% less air pressure. Alliance 389VF is the only flotation tire in the market with VF technology that allows to complete the full agriculture cycle by using VF tires.

Furthermore, Alliance offers a wide range of VF tires designed to cause the minimum possible soil compaction during field activities: Alliance 372VF, engineered for tractors and harvester; Alliance 354 and Alliance 363, designed for sprayers and row crop tractors.

Alliance flotation technology: a story of proven innovation
It was 1994 when Alliance started to pioneer the flotation tire market by launching first the bias flotation tire and then the radial flotation one, the popular A380. Since then, Alliance has never stopped to keep ahead and to be the market leader when it comes to flotation technology. In 2017 Alliance placed another milestone: thanks to the innovative Alliance 389VF, the one and only flotation tire with VF technology available in the market, farmers are now able to get the best out of their yield while driving throughout the year on VF tires. 

More and more sizes for Alliance 389VF
The size range of the Alliance premium tire 389VF is getting wider and wider. 6 sizes have already been released and are now available: VF 560/60R22.5, VF 600/55R26.5, VF 650/55R26.5, VF 710/50R26.5, VF 750/45R26.5, VF 750/60R30.5
Further 2 sizes are under development: VF  650/60R26.5, VF  800/60R32.

Alliance 389VF is leading the flotation radial market as the very first tire able to combine flotation and VF technology: this Very High Flexion Flotation tire offers the possibility to be either operated at 30 per cent lower tire pressure or with 30 per cent more load at the same pressure as a conventional flotation tire. By means of this outstanding innovation, Alliance Tire Group is able to provide high-performance tires which allow trailer tires to mirror the pressure of VF tires on today’s high horsepower tractors, thus significantly reducing foot print pressure and resulting soil compaction during agricultural operations – which in turn allows to maintain soil fertility and high yield potentials.
