Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Hampshire
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 went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. 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. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped build today's modern transportation industry. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Hampshire
Let's transition to wheel position, now. 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 hard workers. They grip the road to move you wherever, whenever. Look for biting edges and aggressive tread blocks for superior traction, plus enhanced tread compounds for longer tread life. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Hampshire.
