All three truck tires, one Firestone brand and two Dayton brands, are available in 22- and 24-inch sizes. They are:

* the Dayton On/Off-Highway All-Position, a short-haul tire designed for severe on- and off-highway applications like construction, logging and garbage hauling. It features the company's U-lug shoulder design for traction on soft surfaces, four steel belts and an all-steel casing ply. It is available in standard H-load range sizes for Class 6, 7 and 8 trucks.

* the Dayton Metro All-Position, a short-haul tire designed for pickup and delivery applications. The radial tire has a deep original tread, solid shoulder design, deep wrap-around grooves, thousands of rib-edge sipes, four full steel belts and an all-steel casing ply.
