Your soil is under enough pressure without adding increased soil compaction. By reducing the inflation pressure of your tires, you can decrease soil compaction from existing equipment. What's more, when you're running Firestone agricultural tires with AD2 technology, you've got even more room to adjust to changing conditions. Carry the same load at a lower tire pressure or carry more weight at the same pressure as standard radial tires. Firestone makes it possible.
No matter what tires you’re driving on, operating them with the right inflation pressure is critical. Improper inflation increases fuel consumption and leaves the tire more susceptible to damage and wear. It can also drastically impact the overall footprint, leading to increased compaction. For more detailed information, and to find the recommended inflation pressure for your Firestone tires, see the Inflation Guide.
Tires with IF technology can carry 20% more weight than standard radial tires at the same inflation pressure. When axle loads do not increase, the inflation pressure can be reduced around 20%* compared to standard radial tires.
Tires with VF technology can carry 40% more weight than standard radial tires at the same inflation pressure. When axle loads do not increase, the inflation pressure can be reduced around 40%* compared to standard radial tires.
Less soil compaction, higher yields and increased fuel economy. That's how we farm hard.
