Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Austin
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 championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped shape today's modern transportation industry. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Austin
Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. 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 have tread designs that wick water away for improved road traction. 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 workhorses. They grab the road to propel the truck where it needs to go. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction.
