Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Bishopville, SC

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. 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 Bishopville
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. 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 type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, 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. With flotation tires from Bishopville Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation professionals at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method.

You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire.

Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To keep pace, new sprayer tires must be made for stable handling at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Bishopville Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that provide excellent lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Bishopville
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Bishopville. But first, you'll probably want 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 more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system has its advantages. The best system for your South Carolina farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can benefit from 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. And for traction, our research indicates 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 tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Bishopville farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
