Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Jeffersonville, OH
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Jeffersonville. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your bias tires from your radial tires.

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 "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. 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.

Farm Tires to Support the Jeffersonville Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 harming the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from 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. With Firestone flotation tires in Jeffersonville, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, new sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's crafted to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's just one of our sprayer tires. Your Jeffersonville Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that provide superb lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Jeffersonville
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Jeffersonville. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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 comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Ohio farm. 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 the end, many things can alter the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Jeffersonville Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
