Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Canton, OH
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Canton. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
Firestone has been a leader in the farm tire market for a long time, ever since Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Canton
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With flotation tires from Canton Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right.

The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment.

To protect your crop through the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To keep pace, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. It's designed 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 Canton Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that provide superb ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Canton
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Canton. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system has ups and downs. The best system for your Ohio farm will depend on your specific 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume 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 the end, many variables influence 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 Canton farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
