Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Whitsett many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires.

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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. 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. 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!

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Whitsett
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Whitsett for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Whitsett?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Whitsett. But first, you'll probably want to know: are rubber tracks better than tires 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 has its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your North Carolina farm. You might even be able to benefit from a combo of tire tracks and tires.
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 variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Whitsett farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
