Shop Firestone for Truck & Bus Tires in Yakima
Hard work and perseverance were part of Harvey Firestone's upbringing. He grew up on a farm in the late 1800s. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight 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 support faster shipping of perishables and lower prices for basic goods across the board. 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 construct the transportation industry as we know it. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from drive to trailer tires. Bring Firestone performance and ingenuity to your trucks and buses. Keep reading to learn more about various TRUCK & BUS tire applications and Firestone truck and bus tires for sale in Yakima.
