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. 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." 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Ashland
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect 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 Ashland, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation experts at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern means you'll have stable traction when moving both forward and reverse. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for stable traction and wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you rely on a little help from modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. Though self-propelled sprayers and fertilizers come in many sizes, sprayer tanks are becoming larger and larger. To keep pace, new sprayer tires must be made for stability and handling—at any speed. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Ashland Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that provide excellent ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Ashland?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Ashland. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The answer depends on a variety of factors. 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 comes with pros and cons. The best system for your Virginia farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from 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. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ 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 the end, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Ashland farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
