Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Tuscumbia
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. After WWII, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from trailer to steer tires.
