Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Paris, TN
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Paris. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Either way, you can turn to Firestone Commercial for help.
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 "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. 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 to Support the Paris Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, tillage to 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 Paris Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation professionals at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select 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. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. 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 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. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To keep up, new sprayer tires must be made 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. In Paris, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Paris
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Paris. But you're probably wondering: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer depends on a variety of 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 has ups and downs. The best system for your Tennessee farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can 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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Paris Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
