Did you honestly ask if Michelin would make you a tire that says Firestone? You know those are their own separate companies right? Good luck with that.

No they’re not. Michelin makes better tires, though.

I want Michelin tread and rubber material and I want it to rightly say, “Firestone Supreme” on the side... I think thats only fair...

Nothing "rightly" says Firestone anything.

Unless it's a mid-sized SUV laying on it's roof on the side of the highway.

I think you need to move on from this Firestone obsession. Theres a LOT of nice tires with quality white lettering on them. I know a lot of the guys with 60-70's muscle cars go for the Goodyear's or the BFG Radials with the big bold white lettering and they look just as good as the firestones. I just don't think you understand tire manufacturing. Michelin will only put Michelin logos on their tires for a reason.... actually, all tire companies use their OWN logos. Putting someone else logo on their own tire is called something like copyright infringement or in layman's terms..... STEALING lol. Just do a good local search and see what places offer.
