Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Erie
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 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 help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. 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 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 Erie
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 play a big role in driver comfort and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized road grip. Sure, all-position tires will work on the steer axle, however, you'll see the best performance with tires that are specifically constructed for the steer application.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. 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 Erie. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
