US-based Firestone, currently a subsidiary of Japanese Bridgestone since 1988,was founded back in 1900. The company manufactured the first tyre with non-skid treads in 1908, which later became the standard for all tyres. Just 3 years later, Ray Harroun won the first Indianapolis 500driving a Marmon Wasp fitted with Firestone tyres.
Later in 1992, Firestone introduces the first-ever low-pressure balloon tyres which helpedPete DePaolo seize the number one spot in 1925 Indianapolis 500. Till 1966, all cars that came first in this race were fitted with Firestone tyres.
In 1974, the company madeanother new innovation by introducing steel radial tyres with run-flat features. Another two wins in the Indianapolis 500 in 1996 and 1997 brought the total trophy count for Firestone to 50.
