Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Tacoma
Harvey Firestone grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. That's where he learned the power of perseverance and hard work. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He carried it with him to advance the transportation and truck industries. After World War II, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to help bring down the prices for basic goods and support faster shipping of perishables. 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 build the transportation industry we have today. His spirit lives on in all Firestone commercial truck tires, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet. Keep reading to learn more about various TRUCK & BUS tire applications and Firestone truck and bus tires for sale in Tacoma.

Steer and Drive Tires for Sale in Tacoma
Let's transition to wheel position, now. The engineers at Firestone Commercial make tough tires for all wheel positions, starting with steer tires. Some people would argue that steer tires are the most important truck tires. They play a big role in driver 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.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires are hard workers. They grip the road to move you wherever, whenever. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Contact your commercial tire dealer for more information and availability of steer and drive tires in Tacoma.
