Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Shreveport
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. In the years after World War II, Firestone fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. 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 construct 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. Find your application below to learn more about truck and bus tires for sale at Firestone truck and bus tire dealers in Shreveport.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Shreveport
Let's transition to wheel position, now. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are generally considered to be the most critical tires on a truck. They impact handling and ride comfort and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized road grip. 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.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires are workhorses. They grip the road to move you wherever, whenever. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction.
