Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, and it didn't take long for the Firestone name to become a leader in the ag tier market. 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. 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.

Farm Tires in Nipomo: 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 special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are great 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. With Firestone flotation tires in Nipomo, you can enjoy equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Nipomo
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Nipomo. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer depends on a variety of factors. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system has ups and downs. The system you choose for your California farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume 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. In reality, many factors can impact the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Nipomo Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
