Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, and it didn't take long for the Firestone name to become a leader in the ag tier market. Firestone was a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. 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." 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 Mobile: 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 special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With flotation tires from Mobile Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Mobile
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Mobile. But first, you'll probably want to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system has ups and downs. The best system for your Alabama farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. 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. And for traction, our research indicates 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 all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Mobile farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
