Correct storage of agricultural tires means they must be kept:

  • in a clean state, in a dry,  ventilatedwell-aired room
  • away from direct sunlight
  • away from a source of ozone (electric motor, transformer, arc welding unit, etc.)
  • away from any chemicals, solvents or hydrocarbons liable to affect the nature of the rubber
  • away from any object that might penetrate the rubber (pointed or sharp metal objects)

Keep away from flames or incandescent bodies.

During storage periods, store agricultural tires and inner tubes so as to avoid any deformation due to tension or crushing; keep them mounted and inflated if stacked, remove as much ballast as possible from wheels mounted onto vehicles and overinflate by 6 psi compared to the usage pressure.

Never store bare tires or complete wheels removed from a vehicle directly in contact with the ground.

It is recommended to use protective gloves for handling.

Warning

 

Never heat, weld or braze a rim or wheel with the tire fitted.

Always remove the tire from the rim before an operation of any kind.

Use the Michelin inflation table to correctly define the pressure for your agricultural tires

Underinflation causes excess deformation of the casing and will lead to the tire being prematurely taken out of service.

Overinflation reduces the ground contact surface, causing loss of grip and making the tire more liable to impact and cuts.

If loads are under those indicated in our pressure load tables, never go below the minimum pressure indicated on the product data sheets for the tire.
