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. 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 in Ellenwood: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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 flotation tires from Ellenwood Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To keep pace, modern sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. 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 Ellenwood, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Ellenwood
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Ellenwood. But you're probably wondering: 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. The system you choose for your Georgia farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ about the same amount 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 things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Ellenwood Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
