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. 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 Sandy
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 type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from tillage to harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. Use Firestone flotation tires in Sandy for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Sandy?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Sandy. But first, you'll probably want to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The truth is, the answer varies. 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 system you choose for your Oregon farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 get the job done. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Sandy farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
