Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Wilmington
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. 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. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped build today's modern transportation industry. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in Wilmington
Let's transition to wheel position, now. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, 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. 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 grab the road to propel the truck where it needs to go. Look for aggressive tread blocks and biting edges for exceptional traction, plus superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life. Contact your commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in Wilmington. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.
