More on Firestone Ag Tires for Sale in Longview, WA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Longview many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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. 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. 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 Longview
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and 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 Longview Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation experts at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. 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 features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find we have the right tires and wheels for your irrigation equipment.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep pace, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. 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 just one of our sprayer tires. In Longview, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that offer outstanding handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Longview?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Longview. But you're probably wondering: 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 ups and downs. The system you choose for your Washington farm will depend on your operation. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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 the end, many things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Longview Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
