When Ineos Automotive brings its Grenadier to market in early 2022, the Land Roveresque 4×4 will wear bespoke Bridgestone Dueler A/T 001 tyres as standard equipment. Bridgestone will supply two sizes of Dueler AT 001 for the Grenadier: 265/70 R17 116S XL and 255/70 R18 116S XL.
Bridgestone has been selected by Porsche to be a tyre supplier for the third generation Porsche Cayenne. The Dueler H/P Sport which is being fitted to the Cayenne in the 19-inch front 255/55 ZR19 and rear 275/50 ZR19 sizes and the 20-inch front 275/45 ZR20 and rear 305/40 ZR20 sizes, was fully developed at the Bridgestone European Technical Centre in Rome. The tyres will be produced at the Bridgestone plant in Poznan, Poland and will bear the marking ‘N0’ on the sidewall to denote their original equipment status.
Maserati has selected Bridgestone tyres for the new Levante, the brand’s first-ever SUV. The all-wheel-drive SUV began leaving the company’s Mirafiori plant near Turin in May 2016, fitted with Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport tyres in size 255/60 R18 108W. Tyres supplied to Maserati will wear the initials ‘MGT’ on the sidewall to indicate the manufacturer’s approval of the Dueler H/P Sport as original equipment on its vehicles.
The Bridgestone Dueler 4×4 line-up will soon be strengthened by the addition of a tyre aimed at drivers who spend most of their time on-road yet occasionally hanker for dirt and mud. Bridgestone promotes the new Dueler A/T 001 as a “tough all-terrain and all-season tyre that doesn’t compromise on its on-road capabilities,” and from January 2017 the tyre will progressively replace the Dueler A/T 694 across Europe. An initial range of 23 sizes for 15- to 18-inch rims will cater to more than half of all European 4×4 tyre demand.
