Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Baytown
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. After WWII, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. At the same time, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped build the transportation industry we have today. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.
