Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Waddy
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. After WWII, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. At the same time, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped form the transportation industry we have today. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.
