Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Decatur
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge behind when he left the field. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. After WWII, Firestone fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. At the same time, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped form the transportation industry as we know it. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Decatur

While all-position tires can also be used on the steer axle, steer tires perform the best as they are explicitly designed for the steer application.
