At Alliance Tire, we’re dedicated to making application-specific tires that meet the real-world challenges our customers face. We understand that our customers have a variety of needs, face unique issues, and operate within different budgets—after all, a farmer with 500 acres has different demands than one with 5,000. This is why we have a combine and grain cart tire for every customer.

Whether you’re in the market for a premium radial featuring the latest in tire technology or a bias-ply workhorse, Alliance has a tire for your every need. Here are some of our most popular harvest tires.

Alliance AgriFlex+ VF Combine and Grain Cart Tire Options

Alliance AgriFlex+ combine tires provide a high-tech solution for maximizing harvest loads and minimizing the negative impact massive machinery can have on delicate fields. They can safely carry up to 40% more load than a traditional radial tire at the same inflation pressure, or carry the same load at 40% less pressure—delivering a tire solution for your farm’s heaviest equipment that causes less soil compaction and provides benefits of a putting a larger footprint on the ground, like more traction and better fuel economy.

Alliance AgriFlex+ 372 CFO: Engineered for carrying massive loads, the CFO designation stands for Cyclical Field Operation, which indicates a tire’s ability to increase its capacity when operating in cyclic conditions (where load increases and decreases dramatically).

The impressive steel-belted is our go-to VF tire for combines and grain carts—it’s available in sizes to fit all configurations, including large singles and straddle duals.

Agriflex 372 has an IF version that provides up to 20% more load-carrying capacity than radial tires, or has the ability to carry the same loads with 20% less air pressure.

Alliance AgriFlex+ 377: Designed for use on grain carts, the AgriFlex+ 377 produces a wide, even footprint to decrease soil compaction and has rounded shoulders to reduce rutting, helping protect the soil. Engineered to stand up to the stoutest stalks, the AgriFlex+ 377 features a reinforced carcass, steel belts, and a stubble guard compound for longer life.

Alliance Radial Combine and Grain Cart Tire Options

As harvest machinery has grown larger and heavier, radial tires have come to dominate the field. Radial tires offer a host of advantages over their bias counterparts, including a wider footprint, more flotation, less soil compaction, better traction, and longer life.

Alliance 376 MultiStar: A favourite for a variety of harvest applications—with specific sizes within the family for combines, grain carts, and high-horsepower tractors operating both in the field and on the road. A large, flat tread face, slightly rounded shoulders, and high speed rating make the Alliance 376 MultiStar, an efficient operator on hard surfaces, while strong casing, steel belts, and stubble guard rubber compound ensure lasting performance in the field.

Alliance AgriStar 375: Is a popular choice for combine harvesters, the AgriStar 375 delivers the compaction-minimizing footprint commonly associated with radial tires, along with steel-belted construction and stubble guard compound that a tire needs for many seasons’ worth of service. In the field, the AgriStar’s R1-W tire tread pattern and sharp shoulders deliver fantastic traction, while its high speed rating allows it to travel at road speeds.

Alliance Bias-Ply Combine Tire Options

Until recently, bias tires were the predominant tire found on farm equipment. Although many farmers are moving to radials, others still favour bias tires for their low up-front cost; excellent stability; and stiff, strong sidewalls. Alliance has built its global reputation on top-shelf tire technology like high-speed radials and VF tires…but it applies its manufacturing skills and precision to its bias-ply tires, too.

Alliance 349 Yield Master: The Alliance 349 Yield Master provides great traction—reducing wheel slip and lowering fuel consumption. Built to stand up to the rigors of harvest and prevent unforeseen downtime, the Yield Master is constructed with a robust nylon casing and reinforced bead.

In addition to the high performance and low total cost of ownership offered by our Alliance combine and grain cart tires, they’re also backed with one of the best warranties in the industry—we back our steel-belted AgriFlex IF/VF tires with a 10-year warranty and all of our other farm tires for 7 years.
