Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Tipton, CA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Tipton many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires.

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. 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 Tipton Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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. With flotation tires from Tipton Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Tipton?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Tipton. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The truth is, the answer varies. 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your California farm. You might even be able to 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. For traction, our research has found 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 variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Tipton farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
