Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in New London, MO
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in New London. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. 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. 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. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in New London: For the Growing Season
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 destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation 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 New London Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation specialists at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers. It's crafted specially for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It features Firestone's proven 23° tread and robust nylon-cord body for reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, or floods, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine 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 handling and stability—at all speeds. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In New London, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that deliver outstanding handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in New London?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in New London. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system comes with pros and cons. The best system for your Missouri farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ about the same amount 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 a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A New London farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
