Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in John Day
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 WWII, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped shape the transportation industry as we know it. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in John Day
Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. 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 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.
Steer tires are the brains of a truck, while drive tires are the muscle. 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 commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in John Day. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.

An everyday steer or drive tire? It lives a life of luxury compared to a severe service tire. On-highway tires ride on smooth, paved roads.

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.

That's one reason our John Day inventory of specialized transport tires includes single and tandem axle trailer tires, drive tires, and options for regional service, long-haul, and steering.
