Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Independence
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. 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 build 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.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in Independence
Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are arguably the most important tires on your truck. They play a big role in driver comfort 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.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires work hard. They grip the road to push you where you need to be. Look for biting edges and aggressive tread blocks for superior traction, plus enhanced tread compounds for longer tread life. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Independence. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
Severe Service Tires for Sale in Independence
An everyday steer or drive tire? It lives an easy life compared to a severe service tire. On-highway tires enjoy long stretches of paved open road. But severe service tires?

Our severe service inventory includes extreme service drive tires, wide base radials, and all-position radial tires for both on- and off-highway applications. Whether you're working with municipal or construction fleets, you can find the right severe service tire with Firestone.

They need to work across applications and deliver the same rugged performance, regardless of wheel position or load size. That's one reason our Independence inventory of specialized transport tires also includes single and tandem axle trailer tires, drive tires, and options for regional service, long-haul, and steering.
