Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Baxter
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. 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. 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 today's modern transportation industry. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.
