Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Coachella, CA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Coachella many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Coachella
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 destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Coachella for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

What About Tire Tracks in Coachella?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Coachella. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? 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 California farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has shown that in terms of fuel economy, a track system will consume more fuel since it takes more horsepower to rotate the track. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ about the same amount 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 factors can impact the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Coachella Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
