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 always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Walla Walla
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. 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 type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Walla Walla for equipment that floats better, rides smoother

What About Tire Tracks in Walla Walla?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Walla Walla. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer depends on a variety of 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. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Washington farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combo of tire tracks and tires.
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. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. For traction, our research has found 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 things can alter 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 Walla Walla farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
