Goodyear wins big military contract
BAE Tactical Vehicle Systems has picked Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. to outfit its widely used military transport vehicle with original equipment tires.
The vehicles will use size 395/85R20 Goodyear MV/T tires.
The contract calls for 100,000 tires to be delivered through 2010. They will be produced at Goodyear's Danville, Va., plant.
"Goodyear is extremely pleased with BAE Systems' decision to source Goodyear tires exclusively on this platform and, more importantly, this fitment signifies an important step forward in Goodyear's working relationship with one of the world's premier providers of military vehicles," says Kris Fettig, Goodyear military OE account executive.
