Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Milldale
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 in the field when he became an adult. He carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. After WWII, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. At the same time, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped build today's modern transportation industry. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Distribution & P&D Tires for Sale in Milldale
Local and regional pickup and delivery services face all sorts of difficulties. Routes have to be perfectly planned. Vehicles need to operate at peak performance levels.

Less Than Truckload & Truckload Tires in Milldale
Does your business haul harder, farther? Firestone has plenty of semi-truck tires for you to choose from, including commercial truckload and less than truckload tires in Milldale. Similar to P&D tires, less than truckload tires are ideal for moving small amounts of freight in urban environments, where resistance to abrasion and curbing is a must-have. For bulky loads, there are truckload tires. Truckload tires are specifically made to carry different load sizes, without compromises in service life, safety, and tread wear. We're convinced that Firestone semi-truck tires are a step above most other truckload tires for sale in Milldale. But only Firestone commercial tires are put to the test on the Firestone Farm—right next to where Harvey Firestone tried out his first commercial tire. Firestone less than truckload and truckload tires also have cost-savings built into them. Special features help protect the tire casing from damaging heat to enhance retreadability, increase safety, and save you money.
Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Milldale
Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. At Firestone Commercial, we engineer hardworking tires for every wheel position on your rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are arguably the most important tires on your truck. They play a big role in driver comfort and feature tread designs that wick water away for enhanced 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 workhorses. 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 Milldale. We have tread designs that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tire investment.
Milldale Severe Service Tires
The average steer or drive tire? It lives a life of luxury compared to a severe service tire. On-highway tires enjoy long stretches of paved open road. Severe service tires, however, face urban alleyways, debris-strewn streets, and steep mountain passes. Firestone Commercial has ready-to-go severe service tires in Milldale that can stand up to these tough conditions. We know what high-performance vehicles need to keep working in the conditions they face every day. Our severe service inventory includes extreme service drive tires, wide base radials, and all-position radial tires for both on- and off-highway applications. Whether you're working in construction or waste, you can get the correct severe service tire at Firestone.
Milldale Specialized Transport Tires
It's good to have tires that are designed for one purpose, but sometimes you also need tires that can do more than one thing—and do it all well. They need to work across applications and deliver the same rugged performance, no matter the load size or wheel position. That's why our variety of specialized transport tires in Milldale also includes single and tandem axle trailer tires, drive tires, and options for steering, long-haul, and regional service—on or off the highway.
