To be fair to Firestone, part of the "issues" were created when Ford dropped the recommended inflation pressure to accommodate customer's perceptions of "rough ride". Dropped it to 26psi if I recall correctly.
Granted, Firestone agreed to allow that to be the recommendation.
By the way, Ford later upped their recommendation to 30psi.
Even though other manufacturers didn't have the same failure rate at the lower recommended pressure like did Firestone, Firestones didn't have the same problem at 30psi.
