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. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Erick 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 special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Erick Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

To protect your crop through the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides.

That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. In Erick, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Erick?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Erick. But first, you need to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of 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 has ups and downs. The system you choose for your Oklahoma farm will depend on your operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
Firestone Ag research has insight into your questions. With regards to fuel economy, our research has shown that a track system will use 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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Erick Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
