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. 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 Odessa Growing Season
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 unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. Where other tires dig in and damage the soil, flotation tires don't. They keep heavy-duty farm tires up and off the ground. Use Firestone flotation tires in Odessa for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Odessa?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Odessa. But first, you need to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The truth is, the answer varies. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system comes with pros and cons. The system you choose for your Texas farm will depend on your operation. 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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. In terms of traction, our research has shown that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. In reality, many factors can impact 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. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Odessa Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
