2011 Dodge Muscle Models Come With Firestone Tyres
All over the world – and especially in the USA – Dodge muscle cars have an almost legendary status. Now, according to Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (BATO), the 2011 versions of the iconic Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are to be fitted with Firestone Firehawk GT (as optional original equipment).
The President of, Original Equipment, US and Canada Consumer Tire Sales Division, BATO – Michael Martini – was quoted on the Tyrepress.com website site as recently saying, “the Charger and Challenger are icons of motorsport culture, known for their incredible performances both on the road and on the silver screen.
“The Firestone brand has its own iconic status when it comes to on-road performances in America and linking these brands together is very exciting for us. In pairing the Firestone Firehawk GT’s sporty performance and all season capability with these all-new muscle cars, we may have several new motorsport legends in the making.”
The Firehawk GT tyre is a V-rated all season model and is set to be supplied in size 245/45R20 99V on Dodge’s new flagship saloon – the 2011 Dodge Charger. As well as the Charger, the same tyres are sent for fitment on the 2011 Dodge Challenger.
