Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Eureka, CA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Eureka many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Either way, you can turn to Firestone Commercial for help.
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 "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. Today, Harvey Firestone's original Ohio farmstead is still in use. It's home to the Firestone Farm Tire Test Center, where farm tire tech continues to develop! Learn more about Firestone's large inventory of farm tires and tracks below, and contact your California Firestone Commercial ag tire dealer for farm tire availability in Eureka.
Farm Tires in Eureka: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Eureka for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation specialists at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers.

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To stay current, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's engineered 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 Eureka Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Eureka?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Eureka. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires 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 comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your California farm. 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. 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 reality, many things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Eureka farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
