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. 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Eugene
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 traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Eugene Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation experts at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's crafted specially for pivot and linear irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. The Irrigation Special Tire for mobile irrigation is just that—special. It features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for stable traction and wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. 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 Eugene, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer excellent lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Eugene?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Eugene. But first, you'll probably want to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of 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. The best system for your Oregon farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. For traction, our research has found 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 variables influence the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Eugene Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
