More on Firestone Ag Tires for Sale in Joplin, MO
Maybe you know where to find all the deals on ag tires in Joplin. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. 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!

Farm Tires to Support the Joplin Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 special type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from tillage to 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 Firestone flotation tires in Joplin, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially for linear and pivot 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 has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep pace, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In Joplin, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that deliver superb ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Joplin?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Joplin. But you're probably wondering: 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. 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Missouri farm. You may find it helpful to use 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. For traction, our research has found 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 factors can impact the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Joplin Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
