When it comes to safety, companies should always be nothing but ethical. Firestone was extremely reckless with their decision making which would eventually be their downfall. In the 1970s, the company had reports showing that the rubber was coming off the tires in road tests; however, they continued to sell the tires. It wasn’t until 1980 when it was evident that the company knew about the defective tires. Firestone never recovered from its bad decision and it was eventually bought out by Bridgestone in 1988.
