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 move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Greenville
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 special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during all phases of farming, from 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. With Firestone flotation tires in Greenville, 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 experts at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers. It's made for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse. The Irrigation Special Tire for mobile irrigation is just that—special. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you turn to 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, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stable 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In Greenville, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Greenville?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Greenville. But first, you'll probably want to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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 Illinois farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 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 all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Greenville Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
