At Bridgestone, the world’s number one tyre and rubber company, the global investments in Research & Development are the highest in the industry. And they have paid off. With its premium tyres tailored to the specific needs of Original Equipment Manufacturers and their vehicles, Bridgestone has already been elected as the tyre of choice for more than 45 fitments on over 15 models since the beginning of 2018 - and there are over 60 additional fitments to come by the end of the year.
Bridgestone, the world’s number one tyre and rubber company, continues its successful partnership as the sole tyre supplier for the sporty new BMW i3s. After proving their ability to meet the demands of an electric-powered vehicle with their fitting for the BMW i3, Bridgestone and BMW Group continue their partnership.
Designed to be sporty
The new tyres respond to some specific changes made to the i3s. The vehicle has a sportier appearance with a broader rear track and more expansive rear wheel wells. This inspired Bridgestone to deliver tyres 20mm wider than those on the i3, exemplifying the wider, sportier look of the new vehicle, while ensuring adequate traction to maximise the increased power and torque. Fitted on the 20-inch rims that are standard on the i3s, the Bridgestone tyres are the perfect visual accompaniment to the glossy spats around the edges of the wheel wells. Besides summer and winter variations, Bridgestone is supplying a range of front and rear tyres to ensure a customised approach.
Bridgestone, the world’s number one tyre and rubber company, collaborated closely with Mercedes-Benz for more than two years to design, engineer and fine-tune the Turanza T005 touring tyre to the new Mercedes A-class. The tyre is supplied for the full 17–19” high-rim range including the 17” and 18” tyre with Run-Flat Technology. The Turanza T005 works seamlessly with the vehicle to optimise the driving experience and meet the high standards for which Bridgestone and Mercedes-Benz are both known.
Bridgestone, the world’s number one tyre and rubber company, has applied its top Battlax motorcycle tyre technologies to upgrade its scooter tyre line-up.
From February 2018, maxi scooter riders will be able to choose between Battlax Scooter SC2, the sport tyre, and Battlax Scooter SC2 Rain, the day-to-day touring tyre for maxi scooters.
Nico Thuy, Head of Europe - Motorcycle at Bridgestone EMEA explains: “Bridgestone has moved up closer to consumers and developed two versions of the new Battlax scooter tyre to match their different usage and riding styles. And by applying our flagship Battlax tyre technologies on both versions, Battlax Scooter SC2 and SC2 Rain can promise riders unbeatable performance.”
