Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Auburndale, FL
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Auburndale. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires.

Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, and it didn't take long for the Firestone name to become a leader in the ag tier market. 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." 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 Auburndale
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, 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 flotation tires from Auburndale Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Auburndale
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Auburndale. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? 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 ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Florida farm. 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. For traction, our research has found 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 conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Auburndale farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
