Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Opelousas
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After World War II, Firestone championed 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 brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped build the transportation industry as we know it. 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.
