Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Houston
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 went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. 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 as we know it. 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 Houston
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 arguably the most important tires on your 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 workhorses. 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 commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in Houston. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.

Our severe service inventory includes extreme service drive tires, wide base radials, and all-position radial tires for both on- and off-highway applications.
