Maxxis Gains OE Accreditation from PSA
Tyre manufacturer Maxxis International has received original equipment accreditation from PSA. The company says it has developed its MA-510 tyre in conjunction with PSA specifically for the European OE market – it already complies with the European type approval standard 661/2009 – and is supplying the tyre in size 175/65R14 on the Peugeot 206+.
This is the second OE contract that Maxxis has been awarded for Peugeot and Citroen models manufactured and marketed across Europe. Maxxis said the contract “reinforces a flourishing partnership with PSA”, which dates back to October 2007. The entry model of Peugeot’s best-selling, iconic hatchback, the 206+ is available in a two-door body style with 1.1L and 1.4L petrol and 1.4L diesel engine options.
