(( For consumers trying to find out if their tires are considered dangerous-- the job just got more confusing.
Out of the 47 million Firestone tires under investigation -- not all of them carry the Firestone name. Government investigators revealed they are looking at dozens of other models MADE by Firestone, but SOLD under DIFFERENT brands.
They include:
--Daytona
--Force 4
--Gilette
--Peerless
--Seiberling
--Triumph
Just to name a few.

Although they are not part of Firestone's mandatory recall -- the government is including them in it's investigation because, essentially, they're the SAME TIRE -- regardless of the brand name. It adds more fuel to the fire for consumer groups calling for a wider recall -- one they don't think is likely because:
JOAN CLAYBROOK, PUBLIC CITIZEN : "They're already having problems getting enough tires together to replace the ones that are now on current vehicles."
But some of the recalled tires are making it BACK onto the road. In Seattle -- CBS affiliate KIRO Television found several used tire dealers who were re-selling recalled firestones. Dealers say some customers knew exactely what they were doing. "You say it's recalled and they say? A: Go Ahead and put it on. They say I don't care."
That's because they would THEN turn around and go right BACK to a Firestone dealer and get brand new tires, for free. "Several investigations are underway -- and Congress is getting back in the act too. A FOURTH round of hearings is schuled for next week. Lee Cowan CBS News, Washington.))
