Firestone has been a leader in the farm tire market for a long time, ever since Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932. 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. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Mountain Home: For the Growing Season
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 unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the area 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 Mountain Home 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 professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially for linear and pivot irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. The Irrigation Special Tire for mobile irrigation is just that—special.

Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To keep up, new sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In Mountain Home, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide superb ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Mountain Home?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Mountain Home. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better 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 has ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Idaho farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. 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. In reality, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Mountain Home farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
