Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Darien, GA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Darien many times. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip 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 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. 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Darien
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 special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Darien, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment.

To protect your crop through the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern 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 keep pace, new sprayer tires must be made for stability and handling—at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. It's engineered 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. In Darien, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer outstanding handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

What About Tire Tracks in Darien?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Darien. 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. 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 comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Georgia farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combo of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has insight into your questions. With regards to fuel economy, our research has shown that a track system will use more fuel since it takes 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. 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. In reality, many variables influence 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. Your local Darien Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
