Bridgestone tires win Hyundai fitments
The Bridgestone Potenza RE92A and Potenza RE050A have been chosen as fitments for the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (BATO) will supply the Potenza RE92A in two sizes (225/45R18 91V in the front and 245/45R18 96V in the rear) and the Potenza RE050A in two sizes (225/40R19 89Y in the front and 245/40R19 94Y in the rear).
The RE92A contains trangulated blocks, a computer-enhanced tread design and other features, say BATO officials. The RE050A sports an asymmetrical tread pattern, among other features.
