Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Mount Vernon
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. In the years after World War II, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. At the same time, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped construct the transportation industry we have today. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in Mount Vernon
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 play a big role in driver comfort and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized road grip. All-position tires can also be installed on the steer axle, but steer tires perform best since they're designed specifically for the steer application.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires are hard workers. They grab the road to propel the truck where it needs to go. Look for aggressive tread blocks and biting edges for exceptional traction, plus superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Mount Vernon. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.

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