Addressing the issue of stubble damage to farm tires
In just the past five years, stubble damage has gone from being a non-issue to the number one issue facing the farm tire industry.

Scott Sloan, product engineering manager for Titan Tire, maker of Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires, says tire companies are working to address the problem, but he says there are also things farmers can do to help prevent damage.
