Däckjour offers Firestone Firehawk performance, Precision touring, and FR passenger tires, as well as Destination and Transforce light truck and Winterforce winter tires, along with many other tire lines used as Original Equipment on new vehicles.
Firestone-equipped cars have displayed exemplary performance on the highway and the track, which has made Firestone one of America's best known tire brands over the past 100 years.
Firestone became one of the industry's first Original Equipment tire suppliers when they put pneumatic rubber car tires on the Ford Motor Company's Model T. Today, Firestone remains an Original Equipment supplier to many domestic and imported vehicle manufacturers.
Firestone has also led the pack with its racetrack legacy, starting with a 1911 Indianapolis 500 win by a car running Firestone tires. Since then, over two-thirds of all Indy 500 winners have been equipped with Firestone tires.
Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. was founded in Akron, Ohio in 1900. The company is named after its founder, Harvey Firestone, whose friendship with Henry Ford led to Firestone becoming one of the first Original Equipment suppliers to the Ford Motor Company. Today, Firestone tires are produced in North and South America, as well as Asia and Europe.
In addition to the tires for cars, crossovers, sport utility vehicles and light trucks available through Tire Rack, Firestone also produces a range of tires for motorcycles, go-carts, and commercial trucks.
