Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Knightstown
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. In the years after World War II, Firestone fought for 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," he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped build the transportation industry as we know it. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Knightstown
Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. 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. 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.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires are hard workers. They grip the road to move you wherever, whenever. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction.
