Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Fortuna
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. In the years 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, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form the transportation industry as we know it. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires.
