Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Fort Wright
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 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, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form the transportation industry we have today. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in Fort Wright
Let's transition to wheel position, now. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are generally considered to be the most critical tires on a truck. They play a big role in driver comfort and feature tread designs that wick water away for enhanced road grip. 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.
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 superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Contact your commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in Fort Wright. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
Severe Service Tires for Sale in Fort Wright

Your local Firestone dealer has severe service tires for sale in Fort Wright that can defeat such conditions. We understand the needs of high-performance vehicles and the conditions they face. Our severe service inventory includes extreme service drive tires, wide base radials, and all-position radial tires for both off- and on-highway applications.
