BRIDGESTONE has been selected by Porsche to be a supplier of tyres for the third-generation Porsche Cayenne.
The Dueler H/P Sport which is being fitted for both 19 and 20 inch wheels was fully developed at the Bridgestone European Technical Centre in Rome. The tyres will be produced at the Bridgestone plant in Poznan, Poland.
This is a notable return for Bridgestone as an original equipment fitment on Porsche.
The new Porsche Cayenne builds on 15 years of success.
While this is an SUV, it features typical sports car features with the new mixed-size tyres, which are now on wheels of at least 19 inches.
The mixed tyres improve stability and driving dynamics on bends. The original-equipment Bridgestone tyres will be marked with N0 on the side wall.
Christophe De Valroger, vice president, OE Europe, said: ‘We are very proud to have been selected as a supplier for this iconic vehicle.
‘Completing this development for one of the most demanding worldwide auto manufacturers is for us a great recognition.
‘This is a fantastic illustration of the quality of our products, our leadership in tyre technologies, and the strength of our partnership with Porsche.’
