THE Alliance Forestar 644 III tyre is now available in three new sizes.

Launched last year, the Alliance 644 Forestar III has received impressive feedback and earned an excellent reputation, according to the manufacturer.

The tyre’s large tread width is said to ensure a large footprint, which in turn reduces ground pressure in order to protect forest soils. Wide lug centre blocks are described as delivering excellent traction without tracks, thus allowing for easy transfers on forest roads, but the tyres can equally and easily be operated with tracks.

Wide-centre-block lugs provide stability and riding comfort, while a dual lug angle optimises both traction and durability: a lower angle at the shoulder enhances traction, the higher angle at the centre of the tire reduces wear and ensures durability.

Wider shoulder lugs with high fillet radius are said to enhance the lateral stability of the 644 Forestar III. The shoulder buttress design strengthens the tyre’s sidewalls and provides high stiffness while the curb-rib design enhances the protection of the tire against side impacts and cracks.

The three news sizes of the Alliance 644 Forestar III are: 710/40-24.5, 710/55-28.5 and 780/50-28.5; as well as in previously launched sizes of 600/50-22.5, 710/40-22.5, 600/55-26.5, 710/45-26.5, 750/55-26.5 and 800/40-26.5

“When working in remote forest areas, operators need to be sure that they will neither get stuck nor experience a tyre breakdown. The reliable top performance of the 644 Forestar III easily stands comparisons with more expensive premium competition tires. Owners will surely enjoy the fact that they can benefit from this excellent performance for a more than competitive price,” said Angelo Noronha, president EMEA at Alliance Tire Group.
