    Default OLD ADS

    Which tire is best? It seems that the question has been around awhile.

    Came across an old magazine that had these tire ads in it. FARM JOURNAL Oct. 1937. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    Decided to post them up here.

    Default Re: OLD ADS-Tractor Tire History

    In the 1920’s, they started experimenting with low pressure pneumatic tires on farm tractors. Goodyear used Case tractors and Firestone used Allis-Chalmers tractors.

    In 1934, Nebraska Tractor test 223 , Allis-Chalmers was the first tractor tested with rubber tires and steel wheels. Both the drawbar hp and fuel economy were increased over 25% by using pneumatic tires over steel.

    Major breakthrough for farming and tractors… No more steel wheels…Now super pneumatic tires!

    {Thanks a lot for bringing us down memory lane with those ad’s}
