Bridgestone History

The first Bridgestone tire was manufactured in 1930 by the Japanese “Tabi” Socks Tyre Division.  In 1931, founder Shōjirō Ishibashi made the company its own division called Bridgestone Tire Co, Ltd.

The company headquarters was destroyed during WWII.  After the war, the company began to produce motorcycle tires.

In 1959, the company began to sell nylon tires.

In 1961, the company went public.

In 1967, the company introduced its first radial tire, the RD10.  The company also created Bridgestone America this same year.

In 1988, the company purchased the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company.  Firestone was merged with Bridgestone America in 1990 to form Bridgestone Americas, Inc.

Today, Bridgestone is one of the largest automotive tire manufacturers in the world.  The company has manufacturing plants in 24 countries worldwide.

I purchased a FS591 Steer Tire at the BCR in Odessa,Tx on 06-09-14. 2 Weeks later I discovered that they had installed a 11R22.5 and Not the 295/75R22.5 that my receipt shows I paid for. Now I have 2 different size front tires and can’t get anyone at GCR to CORRECT THE MISTAKE THEY MADE.Thanks, Roger

Yesterday my daughter and I worked 10 hours on the USPS food drive as volunteers. I got a bolt in my tire so I went to the Firestone in Norman Oklahoma on Main St at 5:00pm. Closing for this store was 7:00pm. I was told by the clerk that he didn’t have time to help me but I could come back tomorrow. We had already taken off then tire and had the small spare on it. There were only 2 people in the store waiting one was checking out. This is the first and last time I will ever go to Firestone. When we left we drove to Hibdons Tires arriving just after closing. Not only were we treated nice they remained open and fixed my tire for free. We were also told how much they appreciated Us for coming back to them time and time again. Thanks for nothing Firestone. I made sure to post on facebook this store and since I have family across the US it has been shared so everyone know what customer service your stores provide.

I work at the Holly Springs,Nc Firestone as a tech. Recently had a distal biceps tendon repaired under workers comp April 23 2014. 2 days prior to surgery,dr stated I would be out 1-3 months. Now at my first post p.o. visit May 2, Dr appruptly says I can return to work the following Monday with no use of my left arm. This sounds absurd! I can’t even dress myself or drive a car. I was just fitted for a splint and haven’t had my first physical therapy appt yet. Whose responsible if I slip or fall and reinjure my harm or something else? My Store manager and district are dumbfounded has well.

Had a tire put on at your location in Panama City, Fl. They then clearly added air to all my nitrogen filled tires that are marked with a green cap on the valve stem. This needs to be rectified and corrected so I can use nitrogen in my tires only except the one that was replaced. It would be in your best interest to contact me back soon. Thank you.
