Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Franklin
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 in the field when he became an adult. He carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. In the years after World War II, Firestone championed 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," Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. 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.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Franklin
Now let's learn more about wheel position. At Firestone Commercial, we engineer hardworking tires for every wheel position on your rig, starting with steer tires. Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They affect ride comfort and handling and feature tread designs that wick water away for enhanced road grip. All-position tires can also be installed on the steer axle, but steer tires perform best since they're designed specifically 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 workhorses. They grab the road to propel the truck where it needs to go. Look for biting edges and aggressive tread blocks for superior traction, plus enhanced tread compounds for longer tread life.
