We will show you the advantages and disadvantages between radial and
Diagonal tires at a glance


Radial tires the tire wall moves
separated from the tread. This means that movements do not occur over the tread
transferred to the vehicle, which improves driving comfort and the
Slip on the ground is reduced.

BKT Radial tractor tires have established themselves among our customers, Swiss farmers and companies.


Advantages of radial tires:

+Lower rolling resistance = less fuel consumption

+Flexible tire sidewalls create greater driving comfort

+Better grip on roads as well as better and more agile
Steering behavior

+More resistant to damage to the tread

+Less slip on the ground

+Even weight distribution across the contact area


Disadvantages of radial tires

-More expensive acquisition costs

-Lower spring properties of the tire


Bias tires form a unit
of tread with the side wall. This causes movements across the tread
transmitted to the vehicle, which creates the tire's own movement.


Advantages of diagonal tires

+Cheaper to purchase

+High stability of the tire /


Disadvantages of diagonal tires

-Higher rolling resistance, therefore higher fuel consumption

-Less driving comfort because of stiffer tires

-More slip on the ground, therefore less


Are radial or diagonal tires better?

Bias tires are becoming more and more common
replaced by the more modern radial tires. They impress with their lower fuel consumption,
lower soil compaction, greater driving comfort, and less heating of the tire.
