Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Richmond
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 in the field when he became an adult. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. After World War II, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped shape today's modern transportation industry. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.
