Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Ozark, AL
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Ozark many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Either way, you can turn to Firestone Commercial for help.
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 move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Ozark: 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 type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, 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 Ozark, you can enjoy equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

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 herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops.

What About Tire Tracks in Ozark?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Ozark. 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 answer depends on a variety of 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Alabama farm. 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. All in all, many factors can impact 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 Firestone Ag expert or your local Ozark Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
