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. 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.

Farm Tires to Support the Lubbock Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Flotation tires aim to decrease the damage done to a field's yield. They're made with a wider footprint to limit soil compaction. This type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Lubbock, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Lubbock?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Lubbock. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The truth is, the answer varies. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Texas farm. You may find it helpful to use 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 conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Lubbock Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
