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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. 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!

Farm Tires to Support the East Haven Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction 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 East Haven, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in East Haven
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in East Haven. But first, you'll probably want to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better 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 has its advantages. The system you choose for your Connecticut farm will depend on your operation. You might even be able to benefit from 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. 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. 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 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 East Haven Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
