Bridgestone provides, through Firestone brand,  tires which outfit tractors of the new H series (118cv/128cv/145cv) of LS Tractor, brand of division of agricultural machinery of the South Korean LS Mtron group.

The model supplied is Super All Traction 23°, in dimensions 23.1-30 and 24.5-32. R-1 rated, this tire is suitable for tractors, harvesters and other agricultural equipment, and has been developed with regular bars for use in dry terrain and general services that demand exceptional traction, greater stability, handling and durability.

This tire also features 23° long, uniform angle bars, gap between the bars in the center of the tread, flexible rubber on the side combined with a sturdy tread rubber, optimum spacing between the bars and bead contour with special design.

The Super All Traction 23° design promotes self-cleaning, which contributes to greater traction efficiency. In addition, it minimizes the effects of vibrations and provides greater operator comfort due to a smooth roll.

Other features that stand out are the better fit between the tire and the rim, which prevents debris and damage to the bead from entering, and less wear and tear, resulting in longer life. "We chose Firestone tires for the quality and performance they have been delivering on the field, along with the H Series", says LS Tractor product marketing manager Astor Kilpp.
