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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll 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 Machesney Park: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 stability and traction on loose ground, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Machesney Park, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Machesney Park?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Machesney Park. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Illinois farm. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 factors can impact 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 Machesney Park farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
