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. 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." Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Springfield Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. 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 area being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from tillage to harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Springfield, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Springfield
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Springfield. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better 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 comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Missouri farm. 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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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. A Springfield farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
