Bridgestone Americas Inc. has unveiled a limited edition Firestone Destination A/T tire for the most passionate fans of the University of Alabama.
The limited edition Alabama Tire from Firestone was designed using feedback from Alabama sports fans, and features the name of the school molded into the tire in raised, white lettering.
This is the first Firestone sidewall design targeted to sports fans and echoes the brand’s rich history of using sports to connect with daily drivers. Today’s announcement of the Alabama Tire reflects the next chapter in the brand’s 100+ year sporting heritage. Firestone tires were on the car that won the inaugural Indianapolis 500 Mile Race (Indy 500) in 1911, and in 2016, Firestone earned its 67th Indy 500 victory – more Indy 500 wins than all other tire manufacturers combined.
“Tailgating is the ultimate game day experience for college football fans,” says Anna Philip, Firestone brand manager for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC. “We designed the Alabama Tire so fans can literally Roll Tide, all year round, on a tire that delivers the dependability and durability expected from Firestone.”
The Alabama Tire is an all-terrain tire built to travel and adapt to wet or dry weather with a long-link carbon, reinforced sidewall design to resist cracking, chipping and tearing. It is backed by a 50,000 mile limited treadwear warranty and a 30-Day Buy & Try Guarantee. It's available in nine sizes and sold exclusively in the state of Alabama by authorized Firestone dealers.
