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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Springfield
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 damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction 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 Springfield for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To protect your crop through the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment 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 handling and stability—at all speeds. 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 just one of our sprayer tires. Your Springfield Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Springfield?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Springfield. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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 ups and downs. 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.
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. 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. All in all, many factors can impact the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Springfield Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
