Bridgestone Americas Holding Inc. Vice Chairman and President Duke Nishiyama's goal for Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC (BFNT) is to break even in 2005.

"We must do this," said Nishiyama. "But achieving this will be difficult."

BFNT did not turn a profit last year "due to increases in raw material, pension and health care costs.

"We are going after every opportunity that will help us achieve our profitability goals."
