Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Lafayette
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 behind when he left the field. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. After World War II, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped construct today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.
