Bridgestone Corporation (Bridgestone), the world's largest tire and rubber company, announced the release of the new Firestone CV5000 tire for light commercial vehicle applications. Designed for commercial vehicles that transport cargo and passengers, the all-new Firestone CV5000 tire gives the driver a sense of control, strength and comfort, and is an excellent cost benefit deal.

According to Concheta Feliciano, director of marketing for Bridgestone Brazil, the new tire combines the tradition and reliability of Firestone brand. "We continue to innovate and find the best ways to serve our customers, meeting their needs. The innovation of the Firestone CV5000 tire provides superior performance, security and cost savings for users”, said Feliciano.
