Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Palestine, AR
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Palestine. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Either way, you can turn to Firestone Commercial for help.
Firestone has been a leader in the farm tire market for a long time, ever since Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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. 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 Palestine 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 type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from tillage to 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 Palestine Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation experts at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy the right irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice.

Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It features Firestone's proven 23° tread and robust nylon-cord body for stable traction and wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
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 fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. 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 stability and handling—at any speed. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. 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 just one of our sprayer tires. Your Palestine Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver superb ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Palestine?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Palestine. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The truth is, the answer varies. 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. The best system for your Arkansas farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Palestine farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
