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. By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. Today, Harvey Firestone's original Ohio farmstead is still in use. It's home to the Firestone Farm Tire Test Center, where farm tire tech continues to develop!

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Lynnwood
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 type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from tillage to harvest. Where other tires dig in and damage the soil, flotation tires don't. They keep heavy-duty farm tires up and off the ground. Use Firestone flotation tires in Lynnwood for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation.

To protect your crop through 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. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To stay current, modern sprayer tires must be designed for handling and stability—at all speeds. That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. 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 just one of our sprayer tires. In Lynnwood, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that deliver superb ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Lynnwood?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Lynnwood. But first, you need to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The truth is, the answer varies. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system comes with pros and cons. The best system for your Washington farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
In terms of fuel economy, Firestone Ag research has found that a track system will eat up more fuel since it requires 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 variables influence the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Lynnwood farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
