Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Loudon, TN
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Loudon. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. 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. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. 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 Loudon Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This special 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 less soil compaction and better flotation 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Loudon 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 local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's crafted specially for linear and pivot irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming 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 designed to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's just one of our sprayer tires. In Loudon, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Loudon?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Loudon. But first, you'll probably want to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. 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 comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Tennessee farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. 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 factors can impact the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Loudon Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
