The General Tire and Rubber Company was founded in 1915 by William O’Neil and Winfred E. Fouse in Akron, Ohio, the rubber capital of the world. General Tire entered a booming market with over 300 competitors, so O’Neil and Fouse bypassed the original equipment (OE) market and moved straight on to focus on producing a quality replacement tire.
An early tire that General Tire released was the General Balloon Jumbo, a pneumatic truck tire that required only 12 pounds of air pressure. In 1955, General Tire entered the passenger car OE tire market as the tire supplier for General Motors.

Goodyear supplied Henry Ford with racing tires, and Ford started using Goodyear tires on the Model T in 1908. Goodyear became the world’s largest rubber company by 1926, a mere 28 years after its founding.
Goodyear formed an alliance with Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. in 1999, which reestablished Goodyear as the largest tire manufacturer in the world.
