The 710/60R30 is the most common flotation wheel for the JCB 4000 series. There are two options, the IF BKT and the VF Bridgestone.
The Bridgestone, being a VF tyre, can run at 20% lower pressure or carry 20% more weight compared to the BKT.
The VF 710/60R30 Bridgestone combination is a great option for both low-pressure or high weight carrying capacity – being a VF tyre it can either run at 40% lower pressure or carry 40% higher weight (compared to a standard tyre).
Since 2020, the 4000 series JCB’s have come with 12 stud axles. If you have the older JCB 4000 series with 10 stud axles, we can still supply these wheels. The price will be the same – contact us for more information.
The maximum weights these tyres can carry is as follows:
Load Rating: 167D/164E Will carry 5,450kg up to 65kmh or 5,000kg up to 70kmh
The Bridgestone VT-Tractor is a VF tyre, designed to run at low pressure. Below are the weights you can carry with these Bridgestone tyres at the lowest pressure possible.
At 12psi (0.8bar) this tyre will carry 3,000kg at 65kmh
At 9psi (0.6bar) this tyre will carry 3,000kg up to 50kmh
