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. 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." By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Taft Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation 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 Firestone flotation tires in Taft, you can enjoy 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 equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's crafted specially for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse. 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 reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the equipment 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 stay current, new sprayer tires must be made for handling and stability—at all speeds. 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. In Taft, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer excellent ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Taft?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Taft. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of 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 has its advantages. The system you choose for your Tennessee farm will depend on your operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
In terms of fuel economy, Firestone Ag research has found that a track system will eat up more fuel since it requires 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. In the end, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Taft Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
