Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Pauls Valley, OK
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Pauls Valley many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
Firestone has been a leader in the farm tire market for a long time, ever since Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling 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 in Pauls Valley: For the 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 unique farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With flotation tires from Pauls Valley Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation specialists at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers. It's designed for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for stable traction and wear. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. 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. 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. In Pauls Valley, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide outstanding lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

What About Tire Tracks in Pauls Valley?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Pauls Valley. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Oklahoma farm. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tire tracks and tires.
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. 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 traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Pauls Valley Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
