Firestone tires

I'm thinking of purchasing 255x70x22.5 Firestone 560 tires for my motorhome and I'm looking for input as to problems or what you have to say about these tires. Thanks to all..........

Sorry, but I'll never trust Firestone

Bridgestone IS great!!!

I know, I know.. they are both owned by Bridgestone.... I have always liked and trusted Bridgestone, and I'm not aware of any major issues like Firestone had. What they did twice is unforgivable. I understand there are many loyal Firestone ppl.

two gone, I'm running Firestone tires on my second RV and have them on my Ford Superduty truck as well. No issues with any of them. I'll buy them again when I need tires on my other pick up.

I have Firestones on our motorhome, and yes I will replaace with the same when it's time. The ride is outstanding, even sometimes @ 70mph+, still smooth as silk. BTW they are really good in rain......Good luck,

But Firestone is part of Bridgestone these days. Odds are the Firestone 22.5's are just the Bridgestone with a different name embossed on the side.

My person opinion on Firestones is I would just as soon have a wagon with square wheels. I have had nothing but problems with any Firestone Tire I have owned.

Had excellent service from Bridgestone (Japanese made), Sumitomo and Michelin.
