In general for top yield it is not a good idea to plant good field corn seed into the tractor tire track.
It works fine for small grains, and it works for soybeans.
Corn will not work as good for several reasons, mostly related to planting rates per acre. Beans and small grains you put a lot of seed down, so if a few don't make it in the track the neighbors make up for it.
With corn, every kernel counts, if you plant too thick it messes them up, if you leave gaps it wastes space and allows weeds to fill the void.
I mean, it will work and in perfect ground conditions might not even notice, but it sure wont win any yield awards most years.
