Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Salmon
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 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. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped construct the transportation industry as we know it. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires.

Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires.

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