Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, and it didn't take long for the Firestone name to become a leader in the ag tier 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. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Gary: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This unique farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from tillage to 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. With flotation tires from Gary Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Gary
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Gary. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The truth is, the answer varies. 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Indiana farm. Some farmers can 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. 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 things can alter the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Gary Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
