The Firestone Tire and Rubber Company was founded in 1900 by Harvey Firestone as a supplier of tires for wagons, buggies and other vehicles. Firestone was a leader in the development of automobile tires. Firestone tires were original equipment on Ford automobiles. In 1988, Firestone was bought out by Bridgestone of Japan. Today, Bridgestone continues to manufacture tires under the Firestone brand name.

Firestone makes tires for cars and trucks of all shapes and sizes. Popular Firestone tire models today include the Affinity, Destination, Wilderness and, of course, the famed Firehawk.

Firestone Affinitys are an economical model available in sizes to fit today's most popular car models. They feature a Spiral Wrap design which is a continuous nylon wrap encircling the tire. The Spiral Wrap helps the tire retain its original shape in order to improve high speed driving. Firestone Affinity tires are reinforced with Silica for improved traction in cold and wet weather.

The Firestone Destination model is intended for light trucks and SUVs. These tires include Firestone's L.L. Carbon component for improved tread wear as well as their 5 Degree Noise Reduction which produces noise-canceling sound waves to reduce tire noise.

The Firehawk line of tires includes original equipment tires for many different Ford vehicles. They are also available as replacement tires for many sports and passenger cars. The Firehawk GT, for example, is a performance tire that also offers superior noise-reduction qualities for a quiet ride. Their high-silica compound and wider tread profile result in improved cornering and excellent handling.

Firestone's Wilderness line of tires is especially designed for light trucks and SUVs. The Wilderness line gives your truck or SUV a passenger car feel while maintaining the rugged tread look of a traditional truck tire.
