Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Weiser, ID
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Weiser many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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. 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." 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!

Farm Tires in Weiser: For the Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Weiser for equipment that floats better, rides smoother
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation experts at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the best irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's designed for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse.

Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
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 pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be made for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. 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 just one of our sprayer tires. Your Weiser Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Weiser
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Weiser. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer depends on a variety of factors. 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. The best system for your Idaho farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Weiser farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
