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. 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. By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Rocky Mountain House: For the Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. 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 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 raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. Use Firestone flotation tires in Rocky Mountain House for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the appropriate irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers.

Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To keep up, new sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Rocky Mountain House Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Rocky Mountain House?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Rocky Mountain House. But first, you'll probably want to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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 its advantages. The system you choose for your Alberta farm will depend on your operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tire tracks and tires.
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. 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 get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Rocky Mountain House Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
