Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Shelton
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. In the years after World War II, Firestone championed the "Ship by Truck" movement to support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. At the same time, he brought awareness to the nation's lack of paved roads and poorly developed highway system. Firestone helped form the transportation industry as we know it. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from steer to trailer tires.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Shelton
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. Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They impact handling and ride comfort and have tread designs that wick water away for improved road traction. Sure, all-position tires will work on the steer axle, however, you'll see the best performance with tires that are specifically constructed for the steer application.
Steer tires are the brains of a truck, while drive tires are the muscle. Drive tires are hard workers. They grip the road to move you wherever, whenever. Look for aggressive tread blocks and biting edges for exceptional traction, plus superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life. Contact your Firestone dealer with questions about drive and steer tire availability in Shelton. We have tread designs that work across applications and wheel positions, so you get the most out of your tires.
Shelton Severe Service Tires
The average drive or steer tire? It lives an easy life compared to a severe service tire. On-highway tires usually travel on paved, bump-free roads. Severe service tires, however, face rocky mountain passes, urban alleys, and debris-strewn streets. Your certified Firestone dealer has tough severe service tires in Shelton to match these harsh conditions. We understand the needs of high-performance vehicles and the conditions they face. The Firestone severe service inventory includes wide base radials, all-position radials, and extreme service drive tires for on- and off-highway applications.
