Flotation Tires

Flotation tires are a category of tires that provide supplemental traction and stability on soft surfaces such as sand and agricultural fields. Flotation tires from Firestone have treads engineered to make it easier to manoeuvre heavy farm equipment in the field while maintaining traction on loose ground. Industry studies have shown that soil compaction may cause yield losses of more than 40%, so these tires are designed with a wider footprint, helping to minimize compaction with more ground contact. With the weight evenly distributed across an expanded footprint, flotation tires can carry the same load at lower pressures, making them ideal for big equipment.

Before they make it to your farm, all of our tires must prove themselves at the Firestone Farm Tire Test Centre, a 350-acre testing facility dedicated to rigorous ongoing tire testing and development. It's just one more reason why Firestone is the leader in the field.

FARM IMPLEMENT HF-1 TIRE

[HF-1] Firestone's Farm Implement HF-1 Tire features a new design and is well suited for tractor fronts and implements. This bias implement tire has a nylon-cord body that resists impacts, and a cut-resistant sidewall.

FLOTATION ALL TERRAIN TIRE

[HF-1] Designed for low inflation pressure, the Flotation All Terrain Tire by Firestone provides flotation over loose soil and sand. It is designed with an ultrawide footprint and shallow tread for minimum soil compaction.

FLOTATION 23° DEEP TREAD TIRE

[HF-3] Firestone's Flotation 23° Deep Tread Tire is designed with an R-1W tread depth that's approximately 25% deeper in the center compared to the standard R-1 tread, for extra traction and pull. For broad-land and row-crop work, this farm tire has no equal.

FLOTATION FREE ROLLING TIRE

[HF-2] The Flotation Free Rolling Tire is suitable for agricultural applications with flotation needs. It's especially suitable for sprayers, minimizing soil compaction while providing sure traction through the field.

FLOTATION 23° (CENTER RIB) TIRE

[HF-2] Designed for use on fertilizer truck steering and drive axles, the Flotation 23° (Center Rib) Tire has a large air volume capacity, which allows for low inflation pressure and improved flotation. Its proven 23-degree tread design offers excellent traction while the center "rider rib" promotes even wear.

FLOTATION 23° HF-2 TIRE

[HF-2] This harvester flotation tire features a smooth ride and more pull with Firestone's signature 23-degree tread design. The wide tire allows for more air volume and lower inflation pressure for improved flotation.
