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. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio. Learn more about Firestone's large inventory of farm tires and tracks below, and contact your nearest Colorado Firestone Commercial dealer for ag tire availability in Montrose.
Farm Tires in Montrose: For the Growing Season
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 special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Montrose for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Montrose
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Montrose. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer depends on a variety of factors. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Colorado farm. You might even be able to 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. 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 the end, many things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Montrose farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
