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. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. 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 Lowell: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, tillage to 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 Lowell Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops.

What About Tire Tracks in Lowell?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Lowell. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires 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 comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Indiana farm. Some farmers can benefit from 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount 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 variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Lowell Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
