Shop Firestone Ag Tires in Anacortes, WA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Anacortes many times. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires. Your flotation tires from your high flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Either way, you can turn to Firestone Commercial for help.
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. Firestone was a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. 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 Anacortes
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 unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Anacortes for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation experts at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is one of our best-sellers. It's made for pivot and linear irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. For mobile irrigation equipment, consider the Irrigation Special Tire. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To keep pace, new sprayer tires must be made for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's crafted 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 Anacortes Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer outstanding lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Anacortes?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Anacortes. But first, you need to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer depends on a variety of 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 ups and downs. The best system for your Washington farm will depend on your specific operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combination 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. 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 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. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Anacortes Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
