Quincy, Illinois -- Titan International, Inc. is pleased to announce that it will again host its annual tire auctions and Ride 'N' Drive field demonstrations at upcoming North American farm shows.

For more than 20 years, Titan's annual tire auctions have benefited thousands of FFA students across the U.S. The auctions allow show attendees to purchase Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires at highly discounted prices with 100 percent of the proceeds going to support their regional FFA chapters. Last year, Titan raised $121,580 for FFA chapters.

"Organizations like FFA are shaping the next generation of leaders in agriculture," says Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager at Titan International. "Students dedicate a lot of time and effort into enhancing their personal growth, professional development and leadership skills. Titan is proud to give back to an organization that champions such efforts."

The Ride 'N' Drive experience allows show attendees to test-drive machines equipped with the latest tire technologies from Titan and Goodyear Farm Tire. The field demonstrations will feature various 4WD and MFWD equipment with the world's largest farm tires, the Goodyear OPTITRAC LSW1400/30R46, and additional super single tire setups.
