AD² TECHNOLOGY

AD². A NEW LEVEL OF TRACTOR TIRE PERFORMANCE Firestone tires with Advanced Deflection Design (AD²) technology feature construction innovations that help achieve a new level of field performance. Producers using AD² technology can expect higher load capacity, better traction, fuel savings and reduced soil compaction compared to standard, equivalent-sized Firestone radial tires.

HIGHER LOAD CAPACITY

Depending upon the application, tires with AD² technology are available in IF and VF designations. IF tires offer up to a 20% greater load capacity — and VF tires offer up to a 40% greater load capacity at the same inflation, or the same load at a lower inflation.

A NEW LEVEL OF

AD² is the latest tire technology from Firestone brand agricultural tires. Available in both IF and VF designations, tires with AD² technology can carry the same load at lower pressures — or heavier loads at the same pressure — compared to standard equivalent-sized radial tires.

SAVES TIME & FUEL

Studies at our research farm in Columbiana, Ohio, show that Firestone brand tractor tires with AD² technology offer as much as a 4% savings in fuel and 5% savings in time compared to standard equivalent-sized radial tires.

MADE IN THE U.S.A.

Firestone brand tires with AD² technology, including tractor, harvest and sprayer applications, are built in Des Moines, Iowa — the first American-made IF- and VF-designated tires of their kind. The Firestone plant where they are built is the largest farm tire manufacturing facility in the world.

LESS COMPACTION

Firestone brand tires with AD² technology have a larger footprint, which helps reduce soil compaction compared to standard equivalent-sized radial tires. This benefit is especially important with today's larger, heavier equipment.

EXTENSIVE TESTING

The AD² technology was extensively tested for durability and performance at the Firestone Farm Tire Test Center in Columbiana, Ohio. The center is the only farm tire test facility of its kind in the world.
