Goodyear tyres OE on Alfa Romeo Stelvio
With the Stelvio, Alfa Romeo has taken its initial step into the growing SUV market. This important new addition to the Italian manufacturer’s portfolio is expected to arrive in the UK this October, and Goodyear is the first tyre maker to announce that its products have been selected as an original equipment fitment.
“The fact that Alfa Romeo has chosen Goodyear as original equipment for its first SUV confirms our expertise in designing tailor-made tyres for car manufacturers’ new flagship vehicles,” comments Nick Harley, Goodyear’s managing director OE Consumer EMEA. “To meet the requirements for this eagerly awaited car, we had to deliver a tyre that enables the Stelvio driver to appreciate the benefits of a SUV, as well as to fully enjoy the Alfa Romeo spirit.”
Goodyear will supply its Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV in sizes 235/65R17 104W, 235/60R18 103W and 235/55R19 101Y. The original equipment tyres mounted on the Stelvio will bear an ‘AR’ marking on the sidewall to denote their homologation by Alfa Romeo. sg
