Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Vancouver, WA
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Vancouver. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. 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. Firestone was a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires to Support the Vancouver 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 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 better flotation and less soil compaction 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 Firestone flotation tires in Vancouver, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the best irrigation tire The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's made for pivot and linear irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. The Irrigation Special Tire for mobile irrigation is just that—special. It features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
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 fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. Your Vancouver Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that offer superb lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Vancouver
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Vancouver. But you're probably wondering: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Washington farm. You might even be able to benefit from a combo 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 factors can impact the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Vancouver farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
