DETROIT -- In another blow to Bridgestone/Firestone, General Motors Corp., the world's biggest automaker, plans to stop using Firestone tires on certain models this summer and will instead go with the Bridgestone brand.
The decision follows a move by Ford earlier this week to recall 13 million Firestone Wilderness AT tires.
"We listen to our customers, and our customers were telling us they were having some concerns about Firestone," GM spokesman Terry Rhadigan said.
Nissan also said Thursday it will drop Firestones from its retooled Altima.
