Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Norwalk
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 behind 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 championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. In addition to "Ship by Truck," Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped shape the transportation industry as we know it. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Norwalk
Now let's learn more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are generally considered to be the most critical tires on a truck. They impact handling and ride comfort and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized road grip. All-position tires can also be installed on the steer axle, but steer tires perform best since they're designed specifically for the steer application.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires are hard workers. They grip the road to push you where you need to be. Look for aggressive tread blocks and biting edges for exceptional traction, plus superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life. Contact your commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in Norwalk. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
