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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. 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. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Roscoe: 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 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 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 Roscoe for equipment that floats better, rides smoother
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation specialists at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's designed for pivot and linear irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It features Firestone's proven 23° tread and robust nylon-cord body for reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To keep pace, 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 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 Roscoe Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer excellent ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Roscoe?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Roscoe. But first, you'll probably want 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. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system has ups and downs. The best system for your Illinois farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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. In terms of traction, our research has shown 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 factors can impact the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Roscoe Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
