Falken wins Chrysler North American OE deal

Sumitomo Rubber Industries has been awarded a contract from Chrysler Group LLC to supply tires for the 2015 Jeep Compass and Patriot BUX (Built-Up Export) models to be sold in Mexico, China, Australia and other countries around the world. The Compass and Patriot are offered in right and left-hand drive configurations and available with gas and diesel engines.

This is Falken North America’s first contract to supply factory standard OE tyres-namely, Falken’s ZIEX ZE914 ECORUN (size: 215/60R17). The ZE914 was designed to provide excellent rolling resistance while also combining great handling and wear performance. The tyres will be supplied to Chrysler’s assembly plant in Belvidere, Illinois.
