Firestone tyres OE on Subaru Impreza in America
Bridgestone Americas has announced that its Firestone FT140 tyre has been selected as original equipment on the all-new 2017 Subaru Impreza.
The Firestone FT140 tyre, designed specifically for the Subaru Impreza, is engineered with a unique tread pattern to provide all-season performance in both wet and dry conditions, while offering low rolling resistance for enhanced fuel efficiency, said Bridgestone.
Mike Martini, president of original equipment tire sales for the US and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, said: “We have a long history of collaboration with Subaru as the sole tyre supplier for the Outback models in North America, and we appreciate the opportunity to build on our relationship and develop the right tyre for the all-new Subaru Impreza. Our team worked very closely with Subaru to design a tyre that complements the quality and performance of the 2017 Impreza. It is a vehicle built to last, which is why we designed the Firestone FT140 tyre to deliver year-round dependability and durability.”
The Firestone FT140 is available as original equipment on the 2017 Subaru Impreza in size 205/50R17.
