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. 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!

Farm Tires to Support the Oroville Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, 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 Firestone flotation tires in Oroville, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To protect your crop through the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, new sprayer tires must be made for stable 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In Oroville, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer excellent lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Oroville
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Oroville. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your California farm. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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 factors can impact the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Oroville Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
