Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Greer, SC
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Greer many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
Once Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, it didn't take him long to make a name for himself in the farm tire market. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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!

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Greer
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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 Greer for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation experts at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers. It's made for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It features Firestone's proven 23° tread and robust nylon-cord body for stable traction and wear. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, modern 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 crafted to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In Greer, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer excellent ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Greer
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Greer. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to 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 ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your South Carolina farm. You may find it helpful to use a combo of tire tracks and tires.
In terms of fuel economy, Firestone Ag research has found that a track system will eat up more fuel since it requires 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 work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Greer Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
