Q: Can I use Nitrogen in Bridgestone tires?

A: Yes. According to Bridgestone’s website, “Nitrogen is an acceptable inflation gas for use in Bridgestone and Firestone passenger, light truck, and truck tires. Bridgestone has no comment on the various performance claims made by Nitrogen suppliers.”

Q: When were my Bridgestone tires manufactured?

A: If your tires were made in 2000 or later, you can check the last four digits of the serial code on the tire sidewall to find out the exact week and year. The first two digits will tell you the week number. The second two will indicate the year. For example, a tire with a serial code ending in “1505” was produced in the 15th week of the year 2005. Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care technician can also help you determine when your tires were made.

Q: How long do Bridgestone tires last?

A: A tire’s lifespan will vary depending on the actual conditions of its use. Driving habits, service practices, climate, and road characteristics can all play a role.

For a general idea of how long any tire might last, check its treadwear rating. This is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire with a rating of 600 would wear twice as well on a government course as a tire graded 300.

While tire lifespans vary from vehicle to vehicle and driver to driver, there’s one thing you can be sure of—Bridgestone tires are built to last.

Q: Can I install Bridgestone tires on my vehicle at home?

A: We don’t recommend it. Tire removal, installation, and disposal is a job for professional tire technicians. Without the right training and tools, you could put yourself in harm’s way. You could also unintentionally damage your car and new tires.
