Pirelli Scorpion STRs to be OE on Ford pickups
Ford Motor Co. has chosen Pirelli Scorpion STR radials for OE fitment on its 2003 Super Duty F-250 and F-350 full-size pickups.
The tires, in size LT265/75R16, will equip both 4x2 and 4x4 models, says Pirelli Tire North America. They will be manufactured in Brazil and shipped to Ford assembly plants in Louisville, Ky., and Cucutitlan, Mexico.
As was reported earlier on www.mtdealer.com, Pirelli also is supplying its new P6 Four Seasons all-season tire to Ford for use as OE on its Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Car and Grand Marquis models.
These vehicles will be equipped with the P6 Four
Seasons in sizes P225/60VR16 and P225/60VR17. The tires also will be supplied from Pirelli's
factory in Brazil.
The P6 Four Seasons is already OE on some of the latest-generation imported sports sedans and coupes such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and CLK, S-Class and the new E-Class; the
Audi A4, A6 and TT; the BMW 3 Series and 5 Series; Volvo V70 and S60 models; and Saab 9.3 and 9.5 models.
