Making another prestigious addition to its long list of homologations, Bridgestone Tyres confirmed that it would be the official tyre supplier for the latest iteration of the iconic SUV- Porsche Cayenne.
Bridgestone, world’s largest tyre maker, will be shodding the third generation of Porsche Cayenne with its popular Bridgestone Dueler H/P tyres. These tyres have already carved a niche in the Original Equipment segment with various homologations, ranging from Toyota Fortuner to Maserati Levante.
Christophe De Valroger, Vice-President, OE Europe for Bridgestone, commenting on this achievement,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.”,he added.
These tyres will be supplied in the sizes 255/55 R19 for the front axle and 275/50 R19 on the rear. Along with this, the higher-end trims would be running on 275/45 R20 (front) and wider 305/40 R20 (rear) sizes.
The tyres to be used on Cayenne have been entirely developed at the Bridgestone European Technical Centre in Rome, Italy. The production, however, would be from the manufacturing facility in Poznan, Poland.
The tyre sidewall will come inscribed with ‘N0′ engraving on the sidewall to highlight the original equipment status. The last version of Porsche Cayenne was using Nexen N’Fera RU1 tyres.
Bridgestone Dueler H/P tyres have been specially designed for high-powered SUVs. These tyres offer superior traction and excellent ride comfort along with precise steering response.
