Putting equipment to bed for winter? Firestone says check tires

Published:

Winter equipment maintenance season is upon us and that means checking your tires. Inflation pressure is especially important to monitor as a 10 degree drop in temp can reduce pressure by 1- 2 PSI.

We had the opportunity to visit with Brad Harris, Manager of Global Agricultural Field Engineering for Firestone Ag at the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Convention where he detailed some excellent tips for preparing tires for the winter. As Harris points out, it only takes about 30 to 40 seconds to check the inflation pressure and it’s the number one thing customers need to do to make sure their tires can cover the load come spring.
