Step up to safety

The Big Truck Tire Step provides safe maintenance on 18-wheelers, flat bed trailers, 1½ ton, 2 ton, and most medium-sized trucks by allowing you to safely step on the top of the tire. It is approximately 18 inches from the ground to the first step of the standard two-step tire step when on a tire. Weighing around 13 pounds, the two-step tire step folds into a space just over a cubic foot and works for the following tire sizes: 255, 265, 275, 285 and 295 (fits 10- to 11½- inch tread width). The step is made of quality 3003 aluminum and steel and has spring-loaded grips for stability. It is tested to 400 pound capacity. Available accessories include a hand rail and a dual wheel adapter. Visit or call 800-777-4855 for more information and to order.
