I am a content writer and blogger in a digital marketing agency in Nepal where I have to do a lot of research before writing on any subject.


What would you do if the tire of your tractor slips? Before this incident happened, did you notice your tire slipping? As you notice this, did you take action? Or did you just let it go.

When the tire wears out, the tire slips in a wet mud condition. “The wearing out of the tire”, you did not give importance to it. You have already experienced it in a wet mud condition, and you might also have experienced it when you accelerated your tractor. If you are experiencing would be mistake now, then a time has come for you to replace your tire.

There is a term called traction which is related to tire, and it means the power of a tire to handle your tractor power when you accelerate. Along with traction, the tire has a tread. And there are different kinds of tires with different kinds of treads. And they have been rated R1W, R1, and R2. R1W helps to reduce slippage. R1 tire is a tire that most of the tractor manufacturers use. R2 is a tire that grips even in the mud and is best for a variety of soil conditions.

Apart from slipping, does your tire have any other problem? Your tires could have, and some of them have been mentioned below.

1. Overinflating your tires

Before we discuss overinflating, first, you must know what Contact Patch is? It is a term related to tire. In other words, it means the portion of a tire, touching the ground. If you overinflate the tire, the contact patch of your tire becomes smaller. When the contact patch becomes smaller, the traction also becomes smaller. When the traction becomes smaller, your tires will slip. As a result, you might have to face unwanted condition. The best way to prevent is you should follow the guideline to a recommended pressure. Apart from this, you should choose the tire with the best tread.

2. Drive in a track driven by others

As you drive, you should follow the track that has been driven by others. When you do so, you have to adjust the speed of your tractor too. When you adjust the speed, your tire will not slip that much.

3.Use Autosock on the tire

Monsoon driving in mud can be dangerous, and there is a high chance for your tire to slip. In order to prevent this, you have to use autosock on the tire. With the autosock, your tire can make a decent grip. If your tractor is a rear wheel drive, you have to put it on a back wheel.

4. Right tires for the right vehicle

As the title suggests, you should use the right tire. Lighter vehicles put less weight on the tire. On the other hand, heavy vehicles put more weight on the tire. The tires of these vehicles are designed accordingly. When you check the design of these tires, you check the tread of these tires. Tread helps you to prevent your tire from slipping. If you want to know the types of tires that are used in public transportation, then they have been rated as AA, A, B, and C. AA is a tire that maximizes traction, while C is a tire with least traction.

5. Add weight to the rear part of the vehicle

When you add weight to the rear part of the vehicle, the tire grips properly. The weight should be heavy. You know what heavy means. Heavy prevents your tire from slipping.

6. Install snow chains

One of the alternatives to the autosock is snowchain. You can use the snowchain to prevent your tire from slipping.


The tread of the tire is the most important thing; it does not matter what type of vehicle you are driving. Whether you are driving a tractor or a car, your tire must have a tread to prevent from slipping. A time has come for you to inspect your tire whether you are driving home in the winter or monsoon or going to work in farmland. You can say the tire is the greatest asset. This asset not only prevents you from slipping, but also from an accident.
