Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Bracey, VA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Bracey many times. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires.

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 a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. 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. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Bracey
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 type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from 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 flotation tires from Bracey Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Bracey
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Bracey. 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 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Virginia farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combo 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. 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. 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 work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Bracey Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
