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. 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. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Von Ormy 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 type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying 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 raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Von Ormy, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation experts at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select the appropriate irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers.

To protect your crop through the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. 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. Your Von Ormy Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Von Ormy
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Von Ormy. But first, you need to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system has its advantages. The best system for your Texas farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Von Ormy farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
