Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Indianapolis
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 carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. After WWII, 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, Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped shape 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.

Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They affect ride comfort and handling and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized 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.
Steer tires are the brains of a truck, while drive tires are the muscle. Drive tires are workhorses. They grip the road to push you where you need to be. Look for aggressive tread blocks and biting edges for exceptional traction, plus superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life.
