Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Bellingham
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 carried it forward to have many successes in the transportation industry, especially in trucking. After World War II, Firestone fought for the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. In addition to "Ship by Truck," 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 spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from trailer to steer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Bellingham
Now let's learn more about wheel position. We engineer heavy-duty tires for all wheel positions on a 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 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 Bellingham. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.
