One person in Europe has gone above and beyond when it comes to finding and fitting the right tire.

Firestone says one farmer in Denmark is the first person in Europe to be using the biggest radial tire ever produced for agriculture, according to Farmers Weekly.

Kristian Kappel fitted the Firestone 850/75R42-sized DT23s on customized rims to fit the farm’s Steiger 450 for harvest.

The DT23s is manufactured by Firestone and features more than 500 horsepower.

According to Kappel, the tires get a better grip, less soil compaction and reduced fuel consumption, the article states.
