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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. His goal was to get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked ride comfort and traction. In other words, "Put the Farm on Rubber." 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 to Support the Elkton Growing Season
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 unique farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great 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 flotation tires from Elkton Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Elkton?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Elkton. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer depends on a variety of factors. 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. The best system for your Maryland farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combo 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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 the end, many variables influence the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Elkton farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
