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. In addition to "Ship by Truck," 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 steer to trailer tires.

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.
