after the whole explorer/firestone controversy i dont think ford wants to ever be associated with firestone again; or vice versaThey ought to put Firestone tires on 'em. Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone used to go "rough camping" together in modified Ford cars. Firestone tires (Gum-dipped) were factory equipment on new Fords for decades. At one time, new Fords came with Ford-branded tires. Ford may have actually made them. Ford once owned tracts of timber, mines, rubber plantations, glass factories , power plants, cotton acreage, ore ships... Henry was his own raw materials supplier.
Firestone Wilderness AT tires sucked too.
If memory serves me correctly, I think one of Firestone's daughter or granddaughter married into the Ford family. The "Exploder" experience did put a strain on the relationship but I think the Bridgestone merger killed it off!
People always say that until they need a lawyer or politician to do something.
Lmao.. if this isnt the biggest slap in the face to Ford I don’t know what is. Even funnier... what if the engineers didn’t realize the name on the tire until the reveal Hahahaha.. CEO of Ford.. “ uhm guys... just watched the vid reveal.. think we have a problem! “lol, Jeep even hides easter eggs on the Bronco!
