Once Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, it didn't take him long to make a name for himself in the farm tire market. 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. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Lincoln: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during all phases of farming, from tillage to harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Lincoln, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops.

What About Tire Tracks in Lincoln?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Lincoln. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer depends on a variety of factors. You can read all about Rubber Tracks vs. Tires in the Tire Expert Center, but we'll provide a brief overview here, too. Each system has ups and downs. The system you choose for your Alabama farm will depend on your operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combo 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume 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. In the end, many things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Lincoln Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
