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. 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. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Myrtle Creek Growing Season
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 unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation 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 Myrtle Creek Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother

What About Tire Tracks in Myrtle Creek?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Myrtle Creek. 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 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 tire tracks and tires.
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 things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Myrtle Creek farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
