Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Wilson
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 with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. After WWII, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped form 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 performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.
