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. 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." 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Louisburg
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This special type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Louisburg, you can enjoy equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Louisburg?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Louisburg. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? 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 has ups and downs. The best system for your North Carolina farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Louisburg Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
