Find the Right Truck & Bus Tires in Skippers
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. But he didn't leave his knowledge behind when he left the field. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After WWII, Firestone fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. At the same time, Firestone worked to raise awareness for America's unpaved roads and undeveloped highway system. Firestone helped construct the transportation industry we have today. His innovation and commitment to quality are alive in each Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Skippers
Let's transition to wheel position, now. At Firestone Commercial, we engineer hardworking tires for every wheel position on your rig, 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. All-position tires can also be installed on the steer axle, but steer tires perform best since they're designed specifically 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 superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Skippers. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
