Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in West 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. After WWII, 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 construct today's modern transportation industry. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in West 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 affect ride comfort and handling 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.
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 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 West Chicago. We have tread designs that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tire investment.
