Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Yuba City, CA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Yuba City many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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 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. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Yuba City 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 special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With flotation tires from Yuba City Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation specialists at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's designed for linear and pivot irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for stable traction and wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To keep pace, new sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Yuba City Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer superb ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Yuba City?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Yuba City. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? 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 comes with pros and cons. The best system for your California farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has insight into your questions. With regards to fuel economy, our research has shown that a track system will use 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. 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 factors can impact the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Yuba City farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
