Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Galesburg
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 behind when he left the field. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After WWII, 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 commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in Galesburg
Now let's learn 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 affect ride comfort and handling 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.
You can think of steer tires like the brains of a truck, and the drive tires like the muscle and body. Drive tires are workhorses. They grab the road to propel the truck where it needs to go. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Contact your Firestone dealer with questions about drive and steer tire availability in Galesburg. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.

Our severe service inventory includes extreme service drive tires, wide base radials, and all-position radial tires for both off- and on-highway applications.
