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. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. 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!

Farm Tires in Port Angeles: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Flotation tires aim to decrease the damage done to a field's yield. They're made with a wider footprint to limit soil compaction. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without harming 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 flotation tires from Port Angeles Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Port Angeles
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Port Angeles. 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. 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 system you choose for your Washington farm will depend on your operation. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. But as long as proper tire inflation is maintained, a wheeled tractor and comparable tracked tractor will use about equal amounts 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 the end, many things can alter the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. Your local Port Angeles Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
