Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Alturas
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge behind when he left the field. He carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. After World War II, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped form today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Alturas
Now let's learn more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They impact handling and ride comfort and have tread designs that wick water away for improved road traction. 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.
You can think of steer tires like the brains of a truck, and the drive tires like the muscle and body. Drive tires are hard workers. They grab the road to propel the truck where it needs to go. Look for biting edges and aggressive tread blocks for superior traction, plus enhanced tread compounds for longer tread life. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Alturas. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.
