Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Oklahoma City
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. 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 lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped construct the transportation industry we have today. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Oklahoma City
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 affect ride comfort and handling and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized road grip. 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.
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 push you where you need to be. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Contact your commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in Oklahoma City. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.
