Chrysler picks Conti tires for new Ram trucks
Continental Tire the Americas LLC will supply original equipment truck tires for Dodge Ram medium-duty Chassis Cab trucks starting with 2011 model year vehicles.
Chrysler Group LLC has chosen Continental's HSR steer and HDR drive tires, both size 225/75R19.5, for its Ram 4500 and 5500 trucks.
The tires were selected "because they give (the trucks) a competitive advantage, offering a class-exclusive N speed rating (of 87 miles per hour)," says Tom Fanning, Continental's director of OE sales for commercial vehicle tires, the Americas.
"Ram executives have told us this is something their customers have been asking for."
