Implement Tires- Rib Implement I-1, Traction Implement I-3
Farm Implement, Flotation Rib and Lug Tires
Implement tires generally refer to the tires found on tow behind farm implements such as hay wagons, planting and tilling equipment.
Today’s implement tires aren’t just bigger, wider, and heavier, they often have to cover more distance on the road at higher speeds. Generally, implement tires are specified by the equipment manufacturer to carry the load of the implement, but often times the owner may have added an aftermarket tank, sideboards or extra attachments that add weight to the implement. So make sure you weigh the implement BEFORE choosing the right tire. Make sure the tire is rated for the load you are putting on it. Traction road usage and surface considerations also factor into your purchase.

More Tips to Help you through the Confusion of Buying Implement Tires
Implement tires, also called rib implements or flotation tires, are farm tires that go by many different names. To clear up some of the confusion to help you find what you need, let’s break them down into categories:
I-1, also referred to as “wagon tires,” “rib imp,” and “farm flotation tires.” These are multi-ribbed implement tires with high
floatation and multiple ribs. These ribs prevent slippage by providing extra grip and maintaining directional stability.
HF-1 are also multi-ribbed implement tires: They are similar to the I-1 but have a flatter profile which offers a wider footprint. This wider footprint allows heavy load weight to be distributed across the larger footprint. HF-1 tires are also available in different tread patters for other applications.
I-2 Flotation Implement tires, are also referred to as R3 tires.
This knobby style, turf type of tread pattern, is used for swather’s and pull -type wagons.
I-3 Traction Implement tires, are also referred to as R1, or bar type tires. They can also used for swather’s, or a power-driven type implement. They have lugs that provide traction for self cleaning and stability.
FI Multi Ribbed Implement tires are for Hi-speed uses. F1 tires have the same features as a I-1, but are rated for highway service speeds. These tires are designed for transporting implements and wagons at highway speeds. Free rolling, highway speed towed implements.
I-F Improved Flexion Tires are designed for tractors with HI horse power. They typically can carry up to 20% more weight
capacity, at a lower air pressure,which will reduce soil compaction.
Other Implement Terms or Markings:
SL refers to service limited or low section width. This refers to the speed rating of an implement tire at a maximum speed of 25mph.
L refers to Low Section Width
TL designates tires can be used without a tube.
TT designates that tire requires the use of a tube.
