Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Alexandria
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight 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 help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. At the same time, 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 commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Alexandria
Now let's learn more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are arguably the most important tires on your truck. They play a big role in driver comfort and have tread designs that wick water away for improved road traction. While all-position tires can also be used on the steer axle, steer tires perform the best as they are explicitly designed for the steer application.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires work hard. They grab the road to propel the truck where it needs to go. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Alexandria. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.

We know what high-performance vehicles need to keep working in the conditions they face every day.
