Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Utica
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 in the field when he became an adult. He carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. 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 raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped build the transportation industry as we know it. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from drive to trailer tires.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Utica
Let's transition to wheel position, now. The engineers at Firestone Commercial make tough tires for all wheel positions, 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.
Steer tires are the brains of a truck, while drive tires are the muscle. Drive tires work hard. 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. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Utica. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
