As I remember it, Ford Motor Co. had a contract with Firestone tire. There was some issue with the tires blowing out and causing rollover crashes with the Bronco. Ford blamed Firestone claiming they were making inferior tires, Firestone claimed Ford was using too small tires for the weight of the vehicle. Lawsuits flew everywhere, but it eventually got resolved. (That was sometime back, so details are fuzzy)I presume there has been some safety problem with those tyres?
