Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Griffin
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 forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. 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," he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped form today's modern transportation industry. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Griffin
Let's transition to wheel position, now. The engineers at Firestone Commercial make tough tires for all wheel positions, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are generally considered to be the most critical tires on a truck. They play a big role in driver comfort and feature tread designs that wick water away for enhanced road grip. Sure, all-position tires will work on the steer axle, however, you'll see the best performance with tires that are specifically constructed for the steer application.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires work hard. 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. Contact your commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in Griffin. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.

We understand the needs of high-performance vehicles and the conditions they face.
