Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Walton
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. In the years after World War II, 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. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped build 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.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Walton
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. 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 hard workers. 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. Contact your Firestone dealer with questions about drive and steer tire availability in Walton. We have tread designs that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tire investment.
Walton Severe Service Tires
The average steer or drive tire? Its job is easy compared to the work of a severe service tire. On-highway tires ride on smooth, paved roads. Severe service tires, though, traverse urban alleyways, debris-strewn streets, and steep mountain passes. Your certified Firestone dealer has tough severe service tires in Walton to match these harsh conditions. We know the demands that are put on high-performance vehicles. Our severe service inventory includes extreme service drive tires, wide base radials, and all-position radial tires for on- and off-highway applications. Whether you're working with waste or municipal fleets, you can get the correct severe service tire at Firestone.

That's one reason our Walton inventory of specialized transport tires includes single and tandem axle trailer tires, drive tires, and options for steering, long-haul, and regional service—on or off the highway.
