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. Firestone was a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in La Crosse
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. Where other tires dig in and damage the soil, flotation tires don't. They keep heavy-duty farm tires up and off the ground. With flotation tires from La Crosse Firestone Commercial, you can have equipment that floats better, rides smoother

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in La Crosse
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in La Crosse. But you're probably wondering: 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 all about Rubber Tracks vs. Tires in the Tire Expert Center, but we'll provide a brief overview here, too. Each system has its advantages. The best system for your Wisconsin farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
Firestone Ag research has insight into your questions. With regards to fuel economy, our research has shown that a track system will use more fuel since it takes 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. 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 things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems work. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local La Crosse Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
