According to Michelin, a tire that has been driven at less than 80% of normal recommended operating pressure—the manufacturer’s cold inflation pressure required to support a given load—is considered to be run-flat. Proper OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations must be followed when putting any tire and wheel back in service. Thus, any tire determined or suspected to be run-flat should be inspected thoroughly prior to returning service.
Michelin has introduced a new ag tire: the Michelin FloatXBib! Offering a higher load and speed rating than the MegaXBib 2 (191D / 188E), the FloatXBib works well on 4-wheeled spreaders as well as the current series of Terragators without the previous problem of shoulder cracking. “The very best part is that this tire is lower priced and higher spec’d than the MegaXBib2,” added Dan Hayden, Commercial Sales Director at Bauer Built Tire & Service.
The tire casing is the body of the tire and includes components such as the bead, belt system, sidewall, body ply and inner liner—basically everything except the tread.

It’s summer…time to pull that boat cover off, air out the RV, set up the golf cart and prepare the ATV. But before hitting the water, the road, the links or the trails, it’s time to summer-ize your ride with a little warm weather TLC, particularly your tires. Just like your feet, tires take a beating every time you drive. But when they’ve had a long winter’s rest, tires tend to lose pressure and are subject to dry cracking when not stored properly.
Summer’s in full swing. Time to hit the highway with family and friends for planned adventures and spontaneous fun. With so much to do and see on the horizon in front of you, don’t let an unforeseen vehicle mishap derail your much-anticipated road trip. This means paying close attention to the details and mechanics of your ride, particularly your tires. . .
