Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, and it didn't take long for the Firestone name to become a leader in the ag tier market. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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." By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Salisbury 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 stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from 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 Salisbury, you can enjoy equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

What About Tire Tracks in Salisbury?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Salisbury. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The truth is, the answer varies. 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 has its advantages. The best system for your North Carolina farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use a combo 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. And for traction, our research indicates 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 conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Salisbury Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
