Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Iliff, CO
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Iliff. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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 "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. 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!

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Iliff
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 type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from 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 Firestone flotation tires in Iliff, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's crafted specially 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. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, or floods, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To keep pace, new sprayer tires must be made for stable handling at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. 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 just one of our sprayer tires. In Iliff, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that deliver outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Iliff?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Iliff. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better 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 has ups and downs. The best system for your Colorado farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combo 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. 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 variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Iliff Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
