Firestone tire CEO upset with how long tires are lasting
It seems that people who drive cars and trucks are not wearing out the tires fast enough, this quarter we saw our profits flatline. So we are developing a new tire stategay with Ford, Fiat and General Motors where the tires during the lease are free to replace under normal wear but the person must pay $10 per month to get tire assurance. This will help us get re-offuring income like the iTunes radio subscription, NetFlix or Sirius Satellite radio.
I promise next quarter our profits will not be flat. We will find new and creative ways to get more profit from these profit centers.
