It started with a horse…and four tires.
When our founder, Harvey Firestone, worked as a salesman for the Columbus Buggy Company, his was the first vehicle to be equipped with pneumatic tires. Being first would become synonymous with the name Firestone, as the company has continued to lead the competition for more than 115 years.
The Firestone Tire Company was founded on a determination to offer the quality and service it takes to win the race, wherever that race may be. It’s how we made the non-skid tread pattern an industry standard — in 1909. It’s how we’ve helped our drivers win the Indianapolis 500 more than 60 times and counting. And it’s why we’re still a household name generations after Mr. Firestone entered the tire business.
But make no mistake: There’s plenty of roads ahead. And we’re looking forward to writing history for a long time coming.
