Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Lake Charles
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 WWII, Firestone fought for the "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, Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped form the transportation industry as we know it. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Lake Charles
Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They impact handling and ride comfort and have tread designs that wick water away for improved road traction. 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.
You can think of steer tires like the brains of a truck, and the drive tires like the muscle and body. Drive tires are hard workers. They grip the road to push you where you need to be. 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 Lake Charles. We have tread designs that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tire investment.
