Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Matthews
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 WWII, Firestone went to bat for a "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 today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in Matthews
Now let's learn more about wheel position. The engineers at Firestone Commercial make tough tires for all wheel positions, 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. While all-position tires can also be used on the steer axle, steer tires perform the best as they are explicitly designed 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 push you where you need to be. Look for aggressive tread blocks and biting edges for exceptional traction, plus superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life.

We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
