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. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling 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 to Support the Provost Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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. With flotation tires from Provost Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

What About Tire Tracks in Provost?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Provost. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer to that question depends on a few 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 comes with pros and cons. The system you choose for your Alberta farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Provost Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
