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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. 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." Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. 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 Florence
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 provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Florence for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

What About Tire Tracks in Florence?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Florence. But first, you need to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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 has ups and downs. The best system for your Oregon farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can benefit from 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. 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. Your local Florence Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
