Toyota picks Bridgestone run-flat for Sienna
The Bridgestone Turanza EL400 run-flat has been selected to be standard equipment on select models of the 2011 Toyota Sienna minivan. The tire contains Bridgestone's latest 3G RFT technology.
"As an enhancement to earlier run-flat designs... this latest innovation from Bridgestone provides a more comfortable ride which is comparable to that provided by traditional touring tires," say Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC officials.
"The Toyota Sienna AWD is the first vehicle in the world to be fitted with this new, third generation (Bridgestone) run-flat technologies, which offer better ride comfort when compared to earlier versions of Bridgestone run-flat tires."
