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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. 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 Ogallala Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Ogallala for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

What About Tire Tracks in Ogallala?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Ogallala. 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. You can read all about Rubber Tracks vs. Tires in the Tire Expert Center, but we'll provide a brief overview here, too. Each system comes with pros and cons. The system you choose for your Nebraska farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tire tracks and tires.
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. 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 factors can impact the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Ogallala farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
