Ford will put Eagles on 2013 police cars

Posted on April 13, 2012

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. announces that its Eagle RS-A tire is OE on the 2013 Ford Police Interceptor Sedan and Police Interceptor Utility vehicles.

Ford selected the Eagle RS-A tires in size 245/55R18 for this fitment. The fitments include the front- and all-wheel drive versions of the V6 sedan, and the front- and all-wheel drive SUV.

The Goodyear Eagle RS-A is a high-performance tire featuring aggressive shoulder tread blocks for enhanced handling capability and wide circumferential grooves to channel away water. Long a popular choice for police vehicles, the Eagle RS-A also has high-tensile steel belts for responsive handling and strength.

“Across the country, countless other fleets have been using Goodyear tires for many years, because they know they’re getting a level of performance that helps their professionals do their jobs,” said Rick Wendt, channel manager for civilian government sales.
