Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Hamel
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 in the field when he became an adult. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. 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 brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form today's modern transportation industry. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.
