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. 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 Safford Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This unique farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. Where other tires dig in and damage the soil, flotation tires don't. They keep heavy-duty farm tires up and off the ground. With flotation tires from Safford Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation experts at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's designed for linear and pivot irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, or floods, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the device 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 pace, modern sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's designed 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 Safford Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Safford?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Safford. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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 has ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Arizona farm. You might even be able to benefit from a combo 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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 factors can impact the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Safford farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
