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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. 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. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Clarkesville: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without harming the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Clarkesville for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type.

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be made for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's crafted to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's just one of our sprayer tires. Your Clarkesville Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer outstanding lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

What About Tire Tracks in Clarkesville?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Clarkesville. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? 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 its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Georgia farm. You might even be able to benefit from 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. In terms of traction, our research has shown 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 traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Clarkesville farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
