Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Van Horn
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 behind when he left the field. 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. Along with the "Ship by Truck" movement, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped shape the transportation industry as we know it. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires.

Truck Tires for Sale: Drive and Steer Tires in Van Horn
Now let's talk less about load size and more about wheel position. At Firestone Commercial, we engineer hardworking tires for every wheel position on your rig, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are arguably the most important tires on your truck. They affect ride comfort and handling 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 grip the road to push you where you need to be. Look for aggressive tread blocks and biting edges for exceptional traction, plus superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Van Horn. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.

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