Welcome to a new standard for tractor tire performance. Firestone's Advanced Deflection Design (AD2) technology features innovative construction that helps make it possible to achieve a new level of field performance. AD2 technology enables producers to carry the same load at a lower tire pressure, offering a smoother ride while reducing fuel consumption and decreasing soil compaction compared to comparable Firestone radial tires.
Increased Load Capacity
Tires with AD2 technology are available in IF and VF designations, depending on the application. IF tires offer up to 20% greater load capacity - and VF tires offer up to 40% greater load capacity at the same inflation compared to standard radial tires. When the axle load stays the same, the inflation pressure can be lowered compared to standard radials.
Saves Fuel & Time
In internal studies led by our research farm in Columbiana, Ohio, Firestone tractor tires with AD2 technology have a larger footprint which increases traction. Of the tires tested, we saw an increased fuel savings of as much as 4%, and time savings of as much as 5%, compared to standard Firestone radial tires.
Today's larger, heavier equipment can lead to more soil compaction issues. Firestone tires with AD2 technology operate at a lower inflation pressure compared to standard radial tires, which helps reduce soil compaction.
Cyclical Field Operation
Firestone CFO harvest tires can carry more load than standard radial tires and are engineered for the extreme load cycles that are part of the harvest season.
Hear first-hand from Iowa farmer, Ben Riensche, as he shares how he has come to rely on the traction and flotation that Firestone Ag tires with AD2 technology deliver in a high yield environment.
AD2 Technology In Action
We put more into our tires so you get more out of them.
With reduced soil compaction and improved traction, Advanced Deflection Design (AD2) technology enables today's heavier farm equipment to carry the same load at a lower pressure, and higher loads at the same pressure as our equivalent-sized radial tires.
Firestone Destination Farm radial implement tires with AD2 technology help reduce soil compaction by running on lower pressure, on a wider track to distribute the weight over a larger surface area.
