Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire Co. LLC (BFNT) reports its Bridgestone Potenza RE92 tire has been selected as the OE tire for the new 2003 Subaru Baja.

The all-wheel drive Baja is the newest Subaru crossover vehicle, and is based on the Legacy/Outback platform. It arrived in U.S. showrooms in September.

The Baja will be shod with size P225/60R16 in an H-speed rating.

While the H-speed rated, all-season Bridgestone Potenza RE92 has been available for some time, this is the only application to feature raised white letters on the tire sidewall, a feature designed specifically for Subaru, says BFNT.

"This tire represents 24 months of joint development and engineering work between Bridgestone/Firestone and Subaru," says Michael Martini, vice president, North American consumer original equipment sales, BFNT.

"Bridgestone/Firestone and Subaru have worked together on original equipment tire fitments for the past 10 years," Martini added.
