Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Brazil, IN
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Brazil many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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 "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. 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! Explore Firestone's catalog of farm tracks and tires below, and contact your Indiana Firestone Commercial ag tire dealer for farm tire availability in Brazil.
For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Brazil
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 special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With flotation tires from Brazil Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. 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 stable traction and wear. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device 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. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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 Brazil Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver excellent lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

What About Tire Tracks in Brazil?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Brazil. But first, you'll probably want to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The truth is, the answer varies. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system comes with pros and cons. The system you choose for your Indiana farm will depend on your operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combo 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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Brazil Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
