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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. 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 Hanford: For the Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 destroying 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. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With flotation tires from Hanford Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

What About Tire Tracks in Hanford?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Hanford. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? 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 its advantages. The best system for your California farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combo 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. And for traction, our research indicates 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 things can alter 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 Hanford farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
