The range includes tyre widths up to 800mm, rim diameters up to 46 inches and tyre diameters up to 2.05m. Continental has supplied John Deere with its Tractor70 and Tractor85 tyres since 2019.

The tyres are manufactured at a purpose-built agricultural tyre production facility in Lousado, Portugal.

We are delighted that John Deere is expanding its Continental tyre range because it highlights our growth ambitions for the agricultural sector."
