Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Elwood
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge behind when he left the field. He carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. 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. In addition to "Ship by Truck," Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped construct today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.
