The weather is breaking and that means it will be time to get into the fields soon. However, before heading off to the fields, some tire maintenance may be necessary. It is costly to have tire problems in the field. There is a small window of time to get fields planted on time. In fact, delayed planting can cost as much as $570 per hour., according to Firestone Ag, a business owned and operated by Bridgestone Americas, Inc.
