Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Bellefonte
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 carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. In the years after World War II, Firestone fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. In addition to "Ship by Truck," he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form the transportation industry we have today. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Bellefonte
Now let's learn more about wheel position. The engineers at Firestone Commercial make tough tires for all wheel positions, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are arguably the most important tires on your truck. They impact handling and ride 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.
You can think of steer tires like the brains of a truck, and the drive tires like the muscle and body. Drive tires are hard workers. They grip the road to move you wherever, whenever. 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 Bellefonte. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.

We know what high-performance vehicles need to keep working in the conditions they face every day. The Firestone severe service inventory includes wide base radials, all-position radials, and extreme service drive tires for both on- and off-highway applications.
