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 Coburg 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 type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during all phases of farming, from 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 Firestone flotation tires in Coburg, you can enjoy equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation specialists at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select the best irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice.

To protect your crop through the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep pace, modern sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. In Coburg, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide superb handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Coburg
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Coburg. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better 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 has ups and downs. The best system for your Oregon farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combo 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. 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. In reality, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Coburg Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
