Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Sutherlin, OR
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Sutherlin. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your bias tires from your radial tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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." 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Sutherlin
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Sutherlin, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides.

But that's only one of our many sprayer tires. In Sutherlin, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide excellent ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Sutherlin?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Sutherlin. 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 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 has its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Oregon farm. 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. In terms of traction, our research has shown that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. In reality, many variables influence the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Sutherlin Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
