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. His goal was to get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked ride comfort and traction. In other words, "Put the Farm on Rubber." By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Alamosa
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Alamosa Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
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 the best irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's made for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. 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 floods, sprinkles, or drips, 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 turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides 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 made for stability and handling—at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. It's engineered to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's just one of our sprayer tires. Your Alamosa Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

What About Tire Tracks in Alamosa?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Alamosa. But first, you'll probably want to know: 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. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system has its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Colorado farm. You may find it helpful to use a combination 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. 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 variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Alamosa Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
