More on Firestone Ag Tires for Sale in Valley Grove, WV
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Valley Grove many times. You know your scraper tires from your sprayer tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
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. 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. 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 in Valley Grove: For the Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 damaging the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. Use Firestone flotation tires in Valley Grove for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

What About Tire Tracks in Valley Grove?
When shopping for farm tires, you might also be interested in comparing tire tracks in Valley Grove. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? The truth is, the answer varies. 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 its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your West Virginia farm. You may find it helpful to use 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. 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. 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 variables influence the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. Your local Valley Grove Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
