Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Franklin
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 went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After World War II, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. At the same time, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped shape the transportation industry we have today. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They affect ride comfort and handling and have tread designs that wick water away for improved road traction. While all-position tires can also be used on the steer axle, steer tires perform the best as they are explicitly designed for the steer application.

Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction.
