Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Akron
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. 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. After WWII, Firestone fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form the transportation industry as we know it. 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.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Akron
Now let's learn more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are generally considered to be the most critical tires on a truck. They affect ride comfort and handling and feature tread designs that wick water away for enhanced road grip. Sure, all-position tires will work on the steer axle, however, you'll see the best performance with tires that are specifically constructed for the steer application.
You can think of steer tires like the brains of a truck, and the drive tires like the muscle and body. Drive tires are workhorses. They grip the road to move you wherever, whenever. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Contact your Firestone dealer with questions about drive and steer tire availability in Akron. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.
