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 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.

Farm Tires to Support the Byron 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 delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during all phases of farming, from tillage to harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. Use Firestone flotation tires in Byron for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Byron
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Byron. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The truth is, the answer varies. 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 its advantages. The system you choose for your Georgia farm will depend on your operation. 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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Byron Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
