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. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. 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!

Farm Tires in Greensboro: For the Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Flotation tires aim to decrease the damage done to a field's yield. They're made with a wider footprint to limit soil compaction. This unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. Use Firestone flotation tires in Greensboro for equipment that floats better, rides smoother
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation specialists at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's designed for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. The Irrigation Special Tire for mobile irrigation is just that—special.

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, new sprayer tires must be made for stability and handling—at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. Your Greensboro Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Greensboro?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Greensboro. But first, you'll probably want to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer depends on a variety of factors. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system has its advantages. The system you choose for your Alabama farm will depend on your operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has insight into your questions. With regards to fuel economy, our research has shown that a track system will use more fuel since it takes more horsepower to rotate the track. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ about the same amount of fuel. For traction, our research has found that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. All in all, many factors can impact the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Greensboro farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
