I went to a firestone/bridgestone shop after I got back up to LA as those were the tires I was riding around on. I was pretty turned off by the way they treated me in that they didn't really seem to give a shit about what happened to the tire. It wasn't normal wear and tear that caused the tire to blow out, it was clearly a road hazard. Now, I know that's hard to prove and I'm pretty sure it's not the easiest thing to prove, but I would imagine that they would do more than give the tire a glance and say "yea sorry, nothing we can do." Not even so much as picking up the tire and inspecting it. I called Firestone directly, conferenced in the store manager who bold face lied and said he'd done a thorough inspection. It just really pissed me off.
