Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Dover
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 forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. After World War II, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. 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 shape today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Dover
Let's transition to wheel position, now. At Firestone Commercial, we engineer hardworking tires for every wheel position on your rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are generally considered to be the most critical tires on a truck. They play a big role in driver comfort and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized 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 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 Firestone dealer with questions about drive and steer tire availability in Dover.
