Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Clanton, AL
Maybe you know where to find all the deals on ag tires in Clanton. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your bias tires from your radial tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
Firestone has been a leader in the farm tire market for a long time, ever since Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. His goal was to get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked ride comfort and traction. In other words, "Put the Farm on Rubber." Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Today, Harvey Firestone's original Ohio farmstead is still in use. It's home to the Firestone Farm Tire Test Center, where farm tire tech continues to develop!

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Clanton
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. Where other tires dig in and damage the soil, flotation tires don't. They keep heavy-duty farm tires up and off the ground. Use Firestone flotation tires in Clanton for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation experts at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, or floods, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's crafted to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's just one of our sprayer tires. Your Clanton Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that provide excellent lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Clanton?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Clanton. But first, you'll probably want to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The truth is, the answer varies. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Alabama farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combo of tire tracks and tires.
In terms of fuel economy, Firestone Ag research has found that a track system will eat up more fuel since it requires more horsepower to rotate the track. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. In terms of traction, our research has shown that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. In the end, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Clanton farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
