They are not always easy to remove. We have used a hair dryer to loosen them up. If you do not remove these stickers, they can puncture your inner-tubes and cause a flat tire which could be a safety-hazard. Please call us if you have any questions on this important issue.
We strongly recommend that all new tube-type tires be equipped with new tubes and flaps. Please order your tires carefully. Details Construction: 4 Ply Poly unless otherwise noted above.
All 12, 13, 14 and 15 inch Firestones are tubeless, except where noted above. ECE is the certification for the European market. UTQG: Not rated. Recommended PSI: See above chart. Some fitment issues can occur with spare tires wells, side-mounts or continental kits.
Static balance with the weights on the inside of the tire only in order to protect the soft whitewall. This also gives a more pleasing appearance.
Recommend the use of lug centric balancing over hub centric. Due to the cosmetic whitewall insert these tires may take 3 to 5 ounces to balance, this is normal. Produced in the USA. The whitewalls, redlines and redlines are molded into the tire, not added on after the tires are made. Many of the Firestone whitewalls have raised lettering on them. Since the whitewall cannot be buffed smooth due to the lettering, the tire will have mould vent marks in the whitewall; this is normal and NOT a warranty issue.
All listed measurements are non-scientific and may change with different rim widths. Never mix bias and radials on the same vehicle because the vehicle may steer uncontrollably. Old rims can often be out-of-round and should be carefully checked before mounting. To find the earliest usage of a whitewall tire, you have to rewind the clock more than years. Originally, automotive tires were off white in color, due to the natural color of the rubber formula used by tire companies.
Zinc oxide would later be used to give the tires a more bright white color. Then, in , B. Goodrich used a substance called "carbon black" in the manufacturing process. This formula strengthened the rubber, which was quite important considering the condition of the roads back then. When mixed with the raw materials, the carbon black caused the tire to be black. A short time later, a smaller tire company jumped on the carbon black bandwagon, but only added it to the tread surface as a cost savings.
