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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. 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 Boyce: For the Growing Season
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 type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Boyce, you can enjoy 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.

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment 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 up, modern 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 engineered to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's just one of our sprayer tires. Your Boyce Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that provide outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Boyce?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Boyce. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer to that question depends on a few 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 system you choose for your Louisiana farm will depend on your operation. Some farmers can 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. 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 work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Boyce farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
