Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Athens

Steer tires are generally considered to be the most critical tires on a truck. They impact handling and ride 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.

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 push you where you need to be. Look for aggressive tread blocks and biting edges for exceptional traction, plus superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life.
