Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Reading
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. 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. At the same time, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped construct today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.
