Bridgestone tyres are famous for being used in some of the most popular motorsports, including Indy Car racing, Formula One racing and MotoGP. Offering cutting edge tyre technology, these tyres have seen many professional motorists pass the finish line in first place. As a result, the Bridgestone Corporation has become one of the most respected tyre manufacturers in the world.
The Bridgestone Tire Company was founded in Japan in 1931 by Shojiro Ishibashi, who used an English translation of his surname for the name of the company. Before then, a tyre industry did not exist in Japan. However, Shojiro saw a future for mortised transport in the country and continued to develop tyres. After the first Bridgestone tyre was produced on 9 April 1931 the company grew rapidly, expanding all throughout Asia as well as overseas. When it eventually acquired The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1988, Bridgestone became one of the largest tyre and rubber companies in history.
Today, Bridgestone tyres are found in almost every country in the world and are used in major motor racing events like the world-famous Indianapolis 500 race. The tyres are renowned for their unique noise-cancelling tread designs, durability and advanced high-performance technologies that give you unparalleled traction in dry, wet and snowy weather conditions. It is therefore not surprising that Bridgestone South Africa has won the Best Tyre Award four times in five years.
