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. 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!

Farm Tires to Support the Ardmore Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, tillage to 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. With flotation tires from Ardmore Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To keep pace, new sprayer tires must be made for stability and 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. Your Ardmore Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer excellent lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

What About Tire Tracks in Ardmore?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Ardmore. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The truth is, the answer varies. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system comes with pros and cons. The system you choose for your Oklahoma farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. 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. All in all, many factors can impact 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. A Ardmore farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
