Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Athens, TN

Agriculture Tires Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Athens many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. 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. 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. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Athens Growing Season

Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage 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 ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Athens for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation experts at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's designed 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 a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be made for stability and handling—at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. It's designed 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 Athens, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide superb ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Athens?

While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Athens. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer to that question depends on a few 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 has ups and downs. The best system for your Tennessee farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tire tracks and tires.

Firestone Ag research has insight into your questions. With regards to fuel economy, our research has shown that a track system will use more fuel since it takes more horsepower to rotate the track. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 reality, many factors can impact 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 Athens Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
