Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Saint Maries, ID
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Saint Maries many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper 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).
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 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. By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling 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!

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Saint Maries
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from 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 Saint Maries Firestone Commercial, you can have 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.

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you turn to modern 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, modern sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. 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 just one of our sprayer tires. In Saint Maries, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that deliver excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Saint Maries?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Saint Maries. 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. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system comes with pros and cons. The system you choose for your Idaho farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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 the end, many variables influence the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Saint Maries Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
