Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Newport
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. In the years after World War II, Firestone championed 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 construct the transportation industry we have today. 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.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Newport
Let's transition to wheel position, now. The engineers at Firestone Commercial make tough tires for all wheel positions, 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.
Steer tires are the brains of a truck, while drive tires are the muscle. Drive tires are hard workers. They grab the road to propel the truck where it needs to go. Look for biting edges and aggressive tread blocks for superior traction, plus enhanced tread compounds for longer tread life. Contact your Firestone dealer with questions about drive and steer tire availability in Newport. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.
