Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Middletown, OH
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Middletown many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. 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 Middletown 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 special type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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. With flotation tires from Middletown Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Middletown
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Middletown. 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 answer depends on a variety of factors. 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Ohio farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. 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 conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Middletown Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
