Massey Ferguson 8S: MF 8S.205-8S.265

The following 8S sets work fine on the MF 8S.225, 8S.245, 8S.265.  For the MF 85.205, the sets will only work if the tractor is specified with the heavy duty rear axle 16T GVW (which allows for the 2.05M rear tyres)

Rowcrop Wheels

380mm wide

The 380/105R50 & 380/90R54 are both the same diameter, however the 380/105R50 has a deeper sidewall which results in a higher load carrying capacity, more options for letting the pressures down and also a more comfortable ride.

420/95R50

The 420 wide is less common than the 380’s however the VF 420/95R50 has a place as a high-load rowcrop in a slightly wider tyre width.

Wide & Flotation Wheels

900/60R38

The best wide wheel options for the MF 8S series tractors is the 900/60R38 with a 710 wide front.  There are two different makes/sizes of front to make sure it works with the 4WD.

800/70R38

While not as popular as the VF 900/60R38, if you compare weights and pressure, the VF 800/70R38 will actually carry more load at the same pressure as the VF 900/60R38.

The VF 800/70R38 has a slightly deeper sidewall than the VF 900/60R38 Bridgestone.

MF 7715-18 S D6 & DVT

Standard Wheels

650/65R38

We definitely recommend the 650/65R42 over the 650/65R38 for the MF 7715-7718 S D6 & DVT series – you’ll get much better tractor performance with the taller 42″ tyres.

However, 650/65R38 is a size that we do get requests for.  So we offer the following options.

650/75R38

For higher torque applications, we recommend the 650/75R38, it has a higher load rating and will normally carry approx. 2 ton extra per tyre than the 650/65R42.

Despite the 38” rim diameter, the 650/75R38 has an overall diameter similar to the 650/65R42.

520/85R42

Although its not as popular as a 650 wide tyre, we sometimes get requests for 520 wide tyres to suit the Massey 7S series.

Rowcrop Wheels

There are three common widths of rowcrop wheel for the MF 7715-7718 S D6 & DVT series tractors.  380/90R50 is the most popular, making up 76% of the sets we sell.

The 320/90R50 & 480/80R46 are sometimes chosen for more specialist applications.

380/90R50

The 380/90R50 is by far our most common selling rowcrop size for the MF 7715-7718 S D6 & DVT.  In fact, its the top selling size across our entire range of wheels.

One of the important things to consider with rowcrops is the load rating – the Maxam or Mitas 380/90R50 will carry 9 ton across the back axle.  Most other makes (including Michelin Agribib, Trelleborg, BKT Agrimax etc) only offer a 6.9ton load rating and are often dangerously overloaded.

If you’re using a 3 ton fert spinner, pulling a heavy trailer, etc then the high-load Mitas or Maxam is the tyre you need.

320/90R54

The 320/90R54 is a less common rowcrop option – more suited to specialist crops, for example, lettuce, carrots, or asparagus.

480/80R46

Sometimes farmers prefer a slightly wider rowcrop to make the tyres more versatile – the 480 can do rowcrop work and still be wide enough to pull a trailer on the road.  More popular in Scotland.

Rowcrop Wheels

Wide & Flotation Wheels

There are three main wide wheel options for the MF 7715-18 S D6 & DVT.

900/50R42

The best option for flotation is the 900/50R42 with matching fronts. The 900 is the widest width you can go while still keeping under the 3m road width.

The VF tyre gives a 40% larger footprint than the equivalent standard tyre – meaning you can carry the same weight at 40% lower pressure.

710mm wide

If you’re looking for a tyre that works for both flotation and general use – we often recommend either a VF 710/60R42 or VF 710/70R38 with matching fronts.

The VF tyre gives a 40% larger footprint than the equivalent standard tyre – meaning you can carry the same weight at 40% lower pressure.

MF 7719-26 S D6 & DVT

Standard Wheels

650/65R38

We definitely recommend the 650/65R42 over the 650/65R38 for the MF 7719-7726 S D6 & DVT – you’ll get much better tractor performance with the taller 42″ tyres.

However, 650/65R38 is a size that we do get requests for.  So we offer the following options.

650/75R38

For higher torque applications, we recommend the 650/75R38, it has a higher load rating and will normally carry approx. 2 ton extra per tyre than the 650/65R42.

Maxam Tyres

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.

BKT Logo

BKT Tyres

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 710/60R42.
  • The BKT Spargo tyre is a VF rowcrop tyre – popular on the  MF 8Ss in a VF 380/105R50.
  • The BKT Agrimax Force is a IF tyre, one popular size is the IF 900/50R42.
Bridgestone Logo

Bridgestone Tyres

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.
