Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Concordia, MO
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Concordia many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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." By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling 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 Concordia Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. Use Firestone flotation tires in Concordia for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's made for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It features Firestone's proven 23° tread and robust nylon-cord body for stable traction and wear. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device 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 stay current, new sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's designed 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 Concordia Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer superb lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Concordia
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Concordia. 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 Missouri farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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 things can alter the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Concordia Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
