The story of how one man helped inspire society and revolutionised transportation forever. To this day, Firestone continues to be a leader and driving force in the tyre industry and beyond. The Firestone company was created at the beginning of the 20th century by Harvey Firestone. Over the next three quarters of a century, Firestone worked hard at becoming one of the leading tyre manafcturers in America and became the first constructor to sign an exclusive contract with Ford that meant their tyres were the original tyres mounted on Ford vehicles.
Firestone created the mechanically fastened sidewire tyre, which made changing a tyre much easier than outdated tyres which required a crowbar. This patent propelled the company into business and began its reputation of innovation. This technology is reflected in modern tyres.
Firestone believes the value of a car is determined by what you do with it. Dedication to excellence and innovation ensure their products deliver on quality and precision every time.
