Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Gaylord
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 forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. In the years 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 build the transportation industry we have today. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.
