Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Dillon, MT
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Dillon many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Either way, you can turn to Firestone Commercial for help.
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. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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 Dillon Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, 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 Dillon, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation professionals 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 a popular choice. It's designed for linear and pivot irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, or floods, 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 herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. It's crafted to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Dillon Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

What About Tire Tracks in Dillon?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Dillon. 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 truth is, the answer varies. 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. The best system for your Montana 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 get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Dillon farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
