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. 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." 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 Three Rivers Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Three Rivers, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation experts at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice.

To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you depend on modern farming 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 stay current, new sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Three Rivers Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that provide outstanding lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Three Rivers
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Three Rivers. But first, you'll probably want to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer depends on a variety of 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 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. 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. In reality, many things can alter the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Three Rivers farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
