Few brands are as easily recognizable as Firestone. Firestone is one of the most widely-renowned brand names in the United States, reaching such an extent as to be considered a household name. At one point or another, Firestone products were also the stock products in use among countless different companies, including Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler.
Firestone was founded in 1900, making it one of the oldest companies in the world of automotive design. But that's not quite fair to say, considering that the company hasn't always been producing parts for vehicles. In fact, the company first got its start producing rubber tubing and rubber accessories, a tradition that continues to this day.
Nowadays, Firestone produces a wide variety of rubber items and supplementary accessories. That includes pieces, parts, and hardware like tubings, polymers, and air springs, but what is the company most known for? It's tires. Tires are the bread and butter of the Firestone brand, securing the majority of the company's revenue. That's because the company uses only the highest-quality rubber in the production of its tires and also conducts rigorous pressure and stress tests to ensure the tires perform at their best.
Firestone produces tires for a variety of applications just as wide as the variety for which it produces rubber accessories. The company offers tires for use on agricultural equipment, commercial vehicles, consumer vehicles, and even off-road performance. Whatever you plan to do with your vehicle, Firestone has a tire to help you do just that.
