Technologies Contributing To Sustainable Farming

Firestone agricultural tyres are developed to meet today’s and tomorrow’s requirements of European farmers: ECOLOGY, ECONOMIES and ERGONOMICS.

Firestone agricultural tyres deliver maximum soil-protection for better crop growth and more yield while reducing tyre and vehicle operating costs. Ingenious casing construction and tread pattern design result in high driving-comfort, contributing to the farmer’s well-being.

We develop the products, you take the benefits.

Improved Flexion (IF):
Reduced soil-compaction and increased efficiency

The Firestone Maxi Traction IF tyres feature a robust casing with sidewalls that enable a greater degree of flexing, thus allowing a lower pressure for the same load capacity, resulting in a larger footprint and a lower pressure on the soil.

IF-tyres are in general mounted on today’s faster and more powerful tractors. IF-tyres offer several benefits in terms of efficiency, versatile and sustainable farming

Firestone’s Dual Angle Lug design technology
save time and fuel

Dual Angle, dual benefits: Firestone’s unique Dual Angle Lug-design technology, applied in most of our products contributes to more efficient farming.

The unique lug-design results in excellent traction and self-cleaning and thus reduces fuel-consumption and operation-time in the field.

High Speed Operation: a more ergonomic drive

Most of the Firestone agricultural tyres feature high speed-indexes. D/E speed-rated tyres allow you to transport your load at high speeds, up to 70 km/h. Re-engineered tyre-casings with an increased deflection-level have better damping-characteristics.

Shocks and bumps are absorbed in a better way while tyre-noise and steering-vibrations are reduced to the minimum.

Drive in all comfort, drive on Firestone !

High Load Capacity: maximum farming efficiency

Today’s heavy-duty farming equipment requires suitable tyres. Firestone tyres feature high load indexes, allow you to transport more load at a higher speed.

For the most heavy operations such as front-loaders and harvesting-equipment, Firestone has several patterns and sizes with even higher load capacity.
