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 always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. 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!

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Marion
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This special 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 less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Marion Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation specialists at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type.

The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread 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 rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To stay current, modern sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. It's engineered 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 Marion Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer excellent ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Marion?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Marion. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? 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 its advantages. The system you choose for your Indiana farm will depend on your operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tire tracks and tires.
In terms of fuel economy, Firestone Ag research has found that a track system will eat up more fuel since it requires 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. 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 things can alter the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Marion Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
