More on Firestone Ag Tires for Sale in Swainsboro, GA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Swainsboro many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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 "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. Explore Firestone's catalog of farm tracks and tires below, and contact your Georgia Firestone Commercial ag tire dealer for farm tire availability in Swainsboro.
Farm Tires to Support the Swainsboro 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 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 from planting to fieldwork, tillage to 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 Swainsboro Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation specialists at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially for pivot and linear irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for stable traction and wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
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. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Swainsboro Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer outstanding lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

What About Tire Tracks in Swainsboro?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Swainsboro. But first, you need to know: 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 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 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. 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 things can alter the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Swainsboro farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
