May 10, 2006

Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC (BFNT) reports its Bridgestone brand Turanza tires will be one of the original equipment tires on Mazda’s first crossover sport-utility vehicle (SUV), the CX-7.

BFNT will supply the 2007 Mazda CX-7 with T-speed-rated, all-season Bridgestone Turanza EL 42 luxury touring tires in size P235/60R18.

"The Turanza is a luxury touring tire that complements the performance of Mazda’s new purpose-built crossover SUV," says Michael Martini, president, OE consumer tire division, BFNT. "This fitment is the result of the ongoing relationship between the Bridgestone group and Mazda."
