Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Hermiston, OR
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Hermiston many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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 "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. 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 Hermiston
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect 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 flotation tires from Hermiston Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Hermiston?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Hermiston. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The truth is, the answer varies. You can read all about Rubber Tracks vs. Tires in the Tire Expert Center, but we'll provide a brief overview here, too. Each system comes with pros and cons. 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. And for traction, our research indicates that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. All in all, many things can alter the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Hermiston farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
