Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Slippery Rock
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing 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 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 form the transportation industry we have today. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Slippery Rock
Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are generally considered to be the most critical tires on a truck. They impact handling and ride comfort and feature tread designs that wick water away for enhanced 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 biting edges and aggressive tread blocks for superior traction, plus enhanced tread compounds for longer tread life.
