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 always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Silverton: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without destroying 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 Silverton, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Silverton
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Silverton. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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. The best system for your Oregon farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use a combo of tire tracks and tires.
In terms of fuel economy, Firestone Ag research has found that a track system will eat up more fuel since it requires more horsepower to rotate the track. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ 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 factors can impact the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Silverton farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
