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. 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 to Support the Bonners Ferry 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 type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With flotation tires from Bonners Ferry Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation professionals at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's made for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 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 safeguard your crop during the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides 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 stable handling at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. It's designed 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 Bonners Ferry Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer excellent ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Bonners Ferry?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Bonners Ferry. But first, you'll probably want to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer depends on a variety of 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. The system you choose for your Idaho farm will depend on your operation. You might even be able to 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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Bonners Ferry Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
