Firestone has been a leader in the farm tire market for a long time, ever since Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Today, Harvey Firestone's original Ohio farmstead is still in use. It's home to the Firestone Farm Tire Test Center, where farm tire tech continues to develop!

Farm Tires to Support the Lamar Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This unique farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. Where other tires dig in and damage the soil, flotation tires don't. They keep heavy-duty farm tires up and off the ground. With Firestone flotation tires in Lamar, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Lamar?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Lamar. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer depends on a variety of factors. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system comes with pros and cons. The system you choose for your Pennsylvania farm will depend on your 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. 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 factors can impact the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Lamar farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
