Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Burlington
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 with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. In the years after World War II, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. At the same time, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form the transportation industry we have today. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.
