Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Grants Pass, OR
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Grants Pass. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Either way, you can turn to Firestone Commercial for help.
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. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll 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 Grants Pass
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 delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Grants Pass, you can enjoy 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 local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers. It's crafted specially for linear and pivot irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. 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 reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To stay current, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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 Grants Pass, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide superb lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Grants Pass
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Grants Pass. But you're probably wondering: 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. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system has its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Oregon farm. You may find it helpful to use 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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 reality, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Grants Pass Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
