Bridgestone Potenza tyres are OE on the new 2008 Pontiac G8. Potenza RE050A (size 245/45R18 96V) tyres are optional on the base model 2008 Pontiac G8 saloon and standard on the sportier G8 GT. Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire, LLC (BFNT) is also supplying an optional 245/40R19 94W Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyre for the G8 GT.
The new Pontiac G8 features a standard 256 horsepower, 3.6-litre V6 engine and automatic five-speed transmission. A 361 horsepower, 6.0-liter V8 propels the performance-tuned G8 GT, which also boasts quad polished stainless steel exhaust tips and a six-speed automatic transmission. Both models will be available in Pontiac dealerships in March 2008.
Other US General Motors vehicles that come standard with Bridgestone-brand tyres include three additional Pontiac models – the G6, Torrent and VIBE.
