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 move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Salmon
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 stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the area 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Salmon for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the machine 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 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. Your Salmon Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver superb lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Salmon?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Salmon. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? 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 ups and downs. The best system for your Idaho farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combo of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has insight into your questions. With regards to fuel economy, our research has shown that a track system will use 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. 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. In reality, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Salmon Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
