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.
Bridgestone says this is a notable deal for the company as it returns as an original equipment supplier for Porsche. The new Porsche Cayenne, while an SUV, features a typical sports car feature with the new mixed size tyres. The original equipment Bridgestone tyres will be marked with N0 on the side wall.
“We are very proud to have been selected as a supplier for this iconic vehicle,” said Christophe De Valroger, Vice President, Bridgestone OE Europe. “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.”
