JCB Fastrac 4000 Series: 4220, 4190 & 4160
The most popular rowcrop wheel for the JCB 4000 series is the VF 380/85R38 BKT. This tyre was manufactured specifically for the JCB’s and consequently has a great load and speed rating.
Wide & Flotation Wheels
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.
Our most common selling tyre makes
Maxam is a good quality budget tyre we are able to offer. We’ve been selling the Maxam for a few years now and believe they are a similar quality to the BKT however at a lower price point. There is a very wide range of tyres
including all common sizes.
Some of the most common Maxam wheel sets we sell include the standard 650/65R42 & 540/65R30 and the very popular rowcrop size 380/90R50 & 380/85R34.
Maxam has one of the longest warranties in the tyre industry – standing by there tyres for 8 years from date of purchase.
The BKT is a well known manufacturer of tyres and has a very wide range – there is a BKT tyre available for nearly every tyre size.
Recently they have introduced a number of VF & IF tyres to their range:
- The V-Flecto is a low-pressure VF tyre for flotation, available in sizes such as the VF 600/60R30.
- The BKT Spargo tyre is a VF rowcrop tyre – popular on the 4220’s in a VF 380/85R38.
- The BKT Agrimax Force is a IF tyre, the most popular size for the JCB is the IF 710/60R30.
Bridgestone have two main ranges we sell:
VT-Tractor: This is Bridgestone’s VF, low-pressure range – they can run at 40% lower pressure than a standard tyre. The range consists of common tyre sizes but makes them available in the low-pressure technology. E.g. the Bridgestone VF 900/50R42 is the lowest pressure tyres available – no other tyre manufacturer makes a VF 900/50R42.
VX-Tractor: The Bridgestone VX-Tractor is designed especially for long life on the road. With a special wear resistant rubber compound and 20% more rubber in the lugs, Bridgestone studies show that the VX-Tractor can last more than twice the length of other tyres. If a tractor is doing lots of road work – this is the tyre to go for.
