TIRECRAFT’s Firestone range includes winter tires, performance tires, all season tires, and light truck and SUV tires. Firestone has been making tires since 1900 when the company was founded by Harvey Firestone in Akron, Ohio. Back then, most customers were looking for tires for their buggies, wagons or farm equipment but when Firestone partnered with Henry Ford to supply the first pneumatic rubber car tires on the Model T, they became a leader in the automobile tire market.
Firestone has a lengthy history in racing, and in 1911 Firestone supplied tires to drivers in the first ever Indianapolis 500. Professional racers have been relying on Firestone ever since. It isn’t just race car drivers who benefit from the research put into developing ever faster tires. The technology, materials and processes have also helped cement Firestone passenger tires as some of the best, and it isn’t surprising that it remains one of the most popular tire brands in the world.
You might already be familiar with Firestone as they’re a popular original equipment manufacturer, meaning that many car companies have chosen to install Firestone tires on all new vehicles. Firestone produces tires for passenger cars, performance vehicles, light trucks, commercial heavy trucks, agriculture equipment and tractors, as well as forestry and mining OTR vehicles.
Firestone offers a 30 day buy and try guarantee, and they offer a Gold Pledge Warranty*. Contact your local Tirecraft to find your perfect set.
For standard and touring tires, the Precision touring and FR710 provide good all season traction and mileage and has been a popular tire for the past several years. TIRECRAFT recommends all season tires for most months of the year, except for times the temperature is commonly below 7°C, when we recommend installing a set of winter tires.
Firestone’s Winterforce line of winter tire is widely recognized for its aggressive open tread, and its high density sipes provide the traction needed on icy or hard packed snow. Winterforce offer outstanding traction in deep snow or slushy conditions.
The Destination series has four options to cater to all driving preferences and needs. The Destination ST option is an excellent performance tire. The Destination LE is great for city and highway driving. The Destination AT meets your all terrain needs, and the MT is for the true off-road enthusiast.
Firestone’s long history with racing ensures that its performance tires are unbeatable. Firehawk performance tires are excellent high performance all season tires for drivers looking for exceptional handling. The Firehawk is also a great ultra high performance summer tire.
In 1988, Firestone was purchased by Bridgestone, making the combined company the largest producer of tires and rubber in the world. The head office moved from Ohio to Nashville, Tennessee in 1992. In North America there are 50,000 employees in 52 manufacturing plants.
Firestone has a strong track record in environmental responsibility and leadership, and they have been refining their processes to ensure less waste is produced with a goal of ultimately reducing their CO2 emissions by 25% by 2020. They are not just focussing on their own manufacturing; they’ve also been creating more fuel efficient tires and supporting initiatives to educate consumers on maximizing tire life as well as fuel conservation to reduce the overall impact of driving.
Their experience with racing tires has helped shape their performance tire and ultra high performance tire offering. The Firehawk series is even used by many police forces due to its handling and stability. Similarly, their experience with off road tires helps to constantly improve their tires for pick up trucks and SUVs, where drivers can take advantage of recent discoveries and innovations.
