Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Duson
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge behind when he left the field. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. 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. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped shape the transportation industry we have today. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

We're convinced that Firestone semi-truck tires are a step above most other truckload tires for sale in Duson.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Duson
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 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.
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. Contact your Firestone dealer with questions about drive and steer tire availability in Duson. We have tread designs that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tire investment.

We know the demands that are put on high-performance vehicles.
