Bridgestone Tire Reviews
Making everything from golf balls to tractor treads, Bridgestone is best known for making passenger car tires.
Founded in 1931, it might not sound like a Japanese brand, but it is. Founder Shojiro Ishibashi named the company after himself, using an English translation of his surname.
In 1988 the company grew to become a global powerhouse when it acquired The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company.
It has had a long history of involvement in motorsports, including both Formula 1 and IndyCar.
When it comes to off-road and all-terrain tires, the Dueler line of tires is a go-to solution for many. The brand’s new Dueler H/L Alenza Plus builds on the strong reputation of the original Dueler H/L Alenza, with all-season performance, a quiet and comfortable on-road ride, plus improved rolling resistance for better fuel economy. But perhaps the best option, for savvy tire shoppers is the 80,000 mile treadwear warranty.
All Bridgestone tires (except winter tires and run-flats) come backed with a 90-day Try and Buy guarantee. If you’re not 100% satisfied with your tires, Bridgestone will replace or refund the tires for the original price (with proof of purchase).

Is Bridgestone Owned by Michelin?
No, Bridgestone is not owned by Michelin. Bridgestone actually competes direction with Michelin not only for manufacturing some of the world’s best tires in many segments, but also in terms of volume of tires sold. Michelin does own BFGoodrich, while Bridgestone acquired Firestone tires in 1988.
Bridgestone vs Firestone: What’s The Difference?
When Bridgestone acquired Firestone in 1988 it set about solidifying the financials of the struggling company. Still a household name, Firestone now sits as a mid-level brand in the overall corporate umbrella. While not always true, Firestone tires tend to be slightly less impressive overall in terms of performance and technology, though they are, as a result, more affordable.
