Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Charleston
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge in the field when he became an adult. 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. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped build 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's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet. Keep reading to learn more about various TRUCK & BUS tire applications and Firestone truck and bus tires for sale in Charleston.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Charleston
Now let's learn 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. 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 move you wherever, whenever. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Contact your commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in Charleston. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.
