The top-of-the-range luxury BMW 7 Series saloon, launched in July 2015, is equipped with Bridgestone Potenza S001 UHP sport tyres in six sizes, all with the added safety of RFT (Run Flat Technology). Potenza S001 is Bridgestone’s flagship UHP tyre engineered for high-speed performance.
The selected winter fitment includes the Blizzak LM001 RFT in two sizes, which received the highest test rating from ADAC, German Automobile Club.
Bridgestone’s sales and marketing director Farrell Dolan said: “Bridgestone and BMW group share the same vision of performance, innovation and sustainable mobility. We are very proud to be able to extend this partnership further with two new contracts across the BMW Group range.”
Bridgestone is also supplying its flagship premium touring tyre, Turanza T001, for the latest BMW X1 model, with three sizes in run-flat and three standard. Turanza T001 is engineered to give the smoothest ride with stability at speed and confident wet handling. The winter fitment is Blizzak LM001 RFT in two sizes, with LM001 standard on the smaller 60 series size.
