Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Kingsland, GA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Kingsland many times. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires. Your bias tires from your radial tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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 always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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. 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! Keep reading to learn more about Firestone's selection of farm tires and tracks, and call your local Firestone Commercial tire dealer for ag tire availability in Kingsland, GA.
Farm Tires in Kingsland: 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 unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, 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 Kingsland for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation experts at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's made for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward.

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, new sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In Kingsland, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide outstanding handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Kingsland?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Kingsland. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system has ups and downs. The best system for your Georgia farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has shown that in terms of fuel economy, a track system will consume 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. 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 work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Kingsland Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
