Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Okeechobee, FL
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Okeechobee. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires.

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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. 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." 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 Okeechobee Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are great 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Okeechobee for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops.

The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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. Your Okeechobee Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer superb lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Okeechobee?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Okeechobee. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. You can read all about Rubber Tracks vs. Tires in the Tire Expert Center, but we'll provide a brief overview here, too. Each system has its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Florida farm. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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 variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Okeechobee Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
