Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Hixson, TN
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Hixson many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires.

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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. 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 Hixson
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 special type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Hixson Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller.

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep pace, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. that provide outstanding handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Hixson
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Hixson. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? 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 ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Tennessee farm. Some farmers can benefit from 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. 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 reality, many things can alter the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Hixson Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
