Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Mcminnville, TN
Maybe you know where to find all the deals on ag tires in Mcminnville. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. 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." 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!

Farm Tires in Mcminnville: For the Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without harming the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great 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 Firestone flotation tires in Mcminnville, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation experts at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially 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 reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the equipment 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 stay current, new sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. The Radial All Traction RC Tire is designed for this very thing. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Mcminnville Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer excellent lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Mcminnville?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Mcminnville. But first, you'll probably want to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer depends on a variety of factors. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system comes with pros and cons. The system you choose for your Tennessee farm will depend on your operation. You might even be able to 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. 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 traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Mcminnville farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
