Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Kingsville, OH
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Kingsville. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation 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 move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. 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!

Farm Tires to Support the Kingsville Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without harming the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Kingsville for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation experts at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's designed for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To keep pace, new sprayer tires must be made for handling and stability—at all speeds. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. It's engineered to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. Your Kingsville Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

What About Tire Tracks in Kingsville?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Kingsville. But first, you need to know: 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. 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 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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 reality, 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. Your local Kingsville Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
