Harvey Firestone established his company, Firestone Company, in 1900 in the rubber capital of the world – Akron, Pennsylvania – and it quickly rose to become one of the leading American tire makers. However, their success suffered a severe blow in 1930 when it was revealed that Firestone Plantations in Liberia used forced laborers. Firestone worked closely with whomever ran government there to quash any opposition and even imprison political opponents to maintain its business interests.
Ford and Firestone engaged in a heated tire battle between 2000 and 2001 when high failure rates of P235/75R15 ATX, ATX II and Wilderness AT tires installed on some light trucks were linked with crashes that killed 238 people across the US. A subsequent congressional inquiry led to the creation of TREADA Act: Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability & Documentation Act.
Firestone Transforce AT2 tires offer reliable off-road performance for light trucks and commercial vehicles, featuring an advanced chip and tear resistant compound to withstand rough road conditions. Their tread pattern features open shoulder areas which assist with water evacuation from contact patches quickly to minimize risk of hydroplaning while deep grooves provide reliable grip in rain or snow conditions.
