Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Stratton, CO
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Stratton. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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.

Farm Tires in Stratton: 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 unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Stratton for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

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 herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops.

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 only one of our many sprayer tires.

What About Tire Tracks in Stratton?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Stratton. 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 truth is, the answer varies. 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. The system you choose for your Colorado farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination 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. And for traction, our research indicates 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 factors can impact 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 Stratton Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
