Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Tigard
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. After World War II, Firestone went to bat for a "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 brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped build the transportation industry as we know it. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet. Find your application below to learn more about Firestone truck and bus tires for sale in Tigard.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Tigard
Now let's learn more about wheel position. At Firestone Commercial, we engineer hardworking tires for every wheel position on your rig, starting with steer tires. Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They impact handling and ride comfort and have tread designs that wick water away for improved road traction. All-position tires can also be installed on the steer axle, but steer tires perform best since they're designed specifically 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 Tigard. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
