Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Griffith
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge behind when he left the field. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After World War II, Firestone fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. 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 form the transportation industry we have today. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

Let's transition to wheel position, now. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They impact handling and ride comfort and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized road grip.

Look for biting edges and aggressive tread blocks for superior traction, plus enhanced tread compounds for longer tread life.
