M T D D e c e m b e r 2 0 1 8 76 C o m m e r c i a l l y V i a b l e Centric Parts introduces heavy-duty brakes Centric Parts' new heavy-duty brake program features air disc brake pads, rotors and repair kits for all makes. Air disc brake pads are available in two grades of application-specific friction (106 Series: 23K and 306 Series: 26K) and in more than 20 FMSI (Friction Materials Standards Institute) shapes. The rotor line has more than 25 SKUs of coated and uncoated rotors. The company, which already offered other replacement parts for heavy-duty commercial vehicles, says its air disc brake program is the most complete offering for Class 7 and Class 8 commercial vehicles. CENTRIC PARTS Giti expands ultra-wide-base tire lineup Giti is amping up its lineup of ultra-wide-base tires with two new offerings, the GDL633 FS (pictured) for the drive axle position and the GTL933 FS for trailers in long haul applications. Both tires are SmartWay-verified and available in size 445/50R22.5. The GDL633 FS features a special tread compound for reduced rolling resistance and lower operating cost. The seven circumferential grooves evacuate water and the sipe design provides even contact pressure to minimize irregular wear. The GTL933 FS is designed with a fuel-efficient compound. Its rib edges minimize irregular wear, and the enhanced tread groove design lessens stone retention. GITI TIRE (USA) LTD. CEAT adds row crop tire to Farmax offerings The Farmax Row Crop Ag radial tire from CEAT combines low compaction with high traction. The tire is available in four sizes: 320/80R42, 340/85R48, 230/95R48 and 270/95R48. It is backed by a seven-year warranty. The tire features a higher lug angle and lug overlap at the center of the tread for better roadability and stability; a strong carcass and reinforced bead for high durability and load carrying capacity; D-speed rating for maximum speed up to 40 mph; a rounded shoulder for soil and crop protection; and more lugs for more traction. The company calls the combination of low compaction, better traction and outstanding roadability the "power of CTR." CEAT SPECIALTY TIRES LTD. Michelin updates CerexBib harvester tire The newest edition of the CerexBib harvester tire from Michelin addresses two key issues of farmers: balancing the use of larger machines and higher load capacities with soil compaction concerns. The CerexBib 2 has designations for increased flexion (IF) and very high flexion (VF), as well as Michelin's CFO+ for cyclical field operation, which the tire maker says is better than the standard CFO designation. CFO+ technology offers a second and lower 6 mph cyclic loading table over the standard 10 mph with CFO. The second generation CerexBib 2 is available in nine front sizes and seven rear sizes. MICHELIN NORTH AMERICA INC. Camso improves road speed with latest tracks The newest rubber tracks from Camso, the RD 4500 Track Series, are designed to help farmers maximize uptime by increasing the speed they can travel when on the road. The 4500 series tracks will premiere on the updated 2019 Case IH Rowtrac tractors. The tracks, combined with the capability of the newest tractor, help customers travel up to 50% faster while pulling implements, when compared to the previous track generation, the company says. With less time spent on the road, Camso says farmers can increase overall productivity by 16%. The RD 4500 tracks give the tractor the capacity to achieve road speeds of up to 25 mph on narrow tracks. CAMSO INC. BKT's Multimax MP 527 is designed for telehandlers The Multimax MP 527 from BKT is a versatile radial tire developed for telehandlers in industrial applications.
