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. 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. 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 Jessup
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. 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 unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation 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 Firestone flotation tires in Jessup, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother

What About Tire Tracks in Jessup?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Jessup. But first, you'll probably want 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 its advantages. 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.
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. 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 variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Jessup Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
