Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Paris, TX
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Paris many times. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're looking for tires for a new piece of equipment. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. 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 Paris Growing Season
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 special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect 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. With Firestone flotation tires in Paris, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation specialists at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy the appropriate irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's crafted specially for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It features Firestone's proven 23° tread and robust nylon-cord body for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep pace, 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 designed to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In Paris, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

What About Tire Tracks in Paris?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Paris. But first, you'll probably want to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The truth is, the answer varies. You can read all about Rubber Tracks vs. Tires in the Tire Expert Center, but we'll provide a brief overview here, too. Each system has its advantages. The best system for your Texas farm will depend on your specific operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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. In reality, many variables influence the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Paris Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
