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. 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. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Tacoma: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This special type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With flotation tires from Tacoma Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Tacoma
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Tacoma. But first, you'll probably want to know: 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. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system has ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Washington farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tire tracks and tires.
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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Tacoma farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
