Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Chapel Hill
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 behind when he left the field. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. After WWII, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. At the same time, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped construct the transportation industry as we know it. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in Chapel Hill
Let's transition to wheel position, now. 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 affect ride comfort and handling and feature tread elements that wick water away for optimized road grip. While all-position tires can also be used on the steer axle, steer tires perform the best as they are explicitly designed 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 hard workers. 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. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Chapel Hill. We have tread designs that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tire investment.
