Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in La Jara, CO
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in La Jara. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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. 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!

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in La Jara
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. 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 unique farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect 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 Firestone flotation tires in La Jara, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. In La Jara, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that deliver excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in La Jara
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in La Jara. But first, you'll probably want to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? 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. The system you choose for your Colorado farm will depend on your operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combo of tire tracks and tires.
In terms of fuel economy, Firestone Ag research has found that a track system will eat up more fuel since it requires 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. In reality, many things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local La Jara Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
