Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Paul, ID
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Paul. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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. 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. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Paul Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. 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 provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect 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 Firestone flotation tires in Paul, you can enjoy equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation specialists at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select the best irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's crafted specially for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. The Irrigation Special Tire for mobile irrigation is just that—special. It features Firestone's proven 23° tread and robust nylon-cord body for stable traction and wear. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, 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 equipment that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep pace, 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 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. Your Paul Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Paul?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Paul. 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 to that question depends on a few factors. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system has its advantages. The system you choose for your Idaho 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. 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 tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Paul farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
