Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. In the years after World War II, Firestone championed the "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 shape the transportation industry as we know it. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires.

Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction.

We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.
