Firestone Tires

    The Firestone Company was founded in 1900 and initially it was represented by a tiny firm which intended to manufacture rubber products that were not dedicated to auto or motor-business. But a 31-year old inventor and entrepreneur Jarvis C. Firestone who was at the head of that firm gambled on the bicycle, motorcycle and car casing that was very popular that time.

    In the year 1911 Firestone tires put on racing cars first promoted the win in the Indy 500 racing. Cars with Firestone tires provided at the very least 50 triumphal rounds.

    In 1920 a Japanese Shojiro Ishibashi transformed its small family business producing Japanese footwear tabi into a modern industrial enterprise. He transferred traditional Japanese wooden sandals to the rubber sole. So just a step was left from the rubber footwear soles production to the compounding bicycle tire manufacturing…

    Shojiro Ishibashi organized his own production in the USA called Bridgestone, Ltd. in 1931. Where did he take that name? He just translated his name (Ishibashi) from Japanese to English. Ishibashi meant stone bridge word for word. Moreover bridge stone was consonant with the previous firm name – Firestone.

    In 1988 Bridgestone bought up the rival Firestone, and turned Bridgestone into a global corporation. Now Bridgestone and Firestone exist in the USA under the Bridgestone/Firestone brand.

    Firestone tires today are considered to be one of the most popular tires with good treadwear, perfect directional stability, high quality compounding, reliable harmonic marking and high speed rating.

    Firestone Affinity Touring is an all-season tire for passenger cars and minivans. The tire delivers reliable wet and slush operation coupled with precise handling in the dry and excellent traction in light snow and on ice. The tire is made under the CO-CS technology that takes into account tread pattern, casing shape and construction as well as materials during the tire development. The tire’s compound is molded into a universal tread picture with open-slotted shoulders and wide circumferential grooves that altogether ensure quick and efficient water evacuation. There’s also a continuous stiff rib in the central tread area to enhance course-keeping ability and improve acoustic comfort while numerous diagonal and lateral sipes ensure firm grip on slippery surfaces like ice and compact snow. Firestone Affinity Touring is made from silica-based L.L. Carbon wear-resistant rubber compound that helps avoid cracking and tearing. The tire is housed into steel belt construction reinforced by polyester cord plies to add durability and stabilize ride as well as prolong mileage. Firestone Affinity Touring tire is priced from $58.
