Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Trainer, PA
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Trainer. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation 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).
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. 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." His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. 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 in Trainer: For the Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the area being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during all phases of farming, from tillage to harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With flotation tires from Trainer Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

What About Tire Tracks in Trainer?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Trainer. But first, you need to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? 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 has its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Pennsylvania farm. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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 conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Trainer farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
