Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Chicago
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight 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 fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. At the same time, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped shape today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Chicago
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 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. While all-position tires can also be used on the steer axle, steer tires perform the best as they are explicitly designed for the steer application.
You can think of steer tires like the brains of a truck, and the drive tires like the muscle and body. Drive tires work hard. 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 Firestone dealer with questions about drive and steer tire availability in Chicago. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.

We know the demands that are put on high-performance vehicles. The Firestone severe service inventory includes wide base radials, all-position radials, and extreme service drive tires for both off- and on-highway applications.
