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." His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Oregon City: For the Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. 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 delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect 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 Firestone flotation tires in Oregon City, you can enjoy equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the best irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse.

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. 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 where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's designed 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.

What About Tire Tracks in Oregon City?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Oregon City. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The truth is, the answer varies. 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. 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 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Oregon City Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
