Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Austin, TX
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Austin. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires.

Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, and it didn't take long for the Firestone name to become a leader in the ag tier market. Firestone was always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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. Explore Firestone's catalog of farm tracks and tires below, and call your local Firestone Commercial tire dealer for ag tire availability in Austin, TX.
For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Austin
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without harming the surface 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 Firestone flotation tires in Austin, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation experts 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 one of our best-sellers. It's designed for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse. 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 sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device 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 handling and stability—at all speeds. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. It's engineered 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 Austin Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Austin?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Austin. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer to that question depends on a few 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 ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Texas farm. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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. All in all, many factors can impact the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Austin Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
