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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Comfort
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction 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 Comfort, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Comfort
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Comfort. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? 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 its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Texas farm. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tire tracks and tires.
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. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ 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. All in all, many things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Comfort Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
