Firestone Farm Tire Has 10% Soybean Oil

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations has unveiled a new concept tire containing more than 10% soybean oil. The 900-pound farm tire is marketed under the Firestone brand of agricultural tires and contains approximately 90 pounds of soy oil. The typical application for the 800/70R38 Radial Deep Tread 23 tire is on large four-wheel-drive tractors where eight tires are used. Through soybean processing, one bushel of soybeans yields approximately 11 pounds of soy oil.
