Mazda to fit CX-9 SUV with Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 tires

Nov. 1, 2006

Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC (BFNT) reports its all-season Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 luxury touring tires will be OE on the 2007 Mazda CX-9 sport utility vehicle.

The SUV will be available in three models -– Sport, Touring and Grand Touring –- and will be fitted exclusively with Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 tires in sizes P245/60R18 104H and P245/50R20 102V.

“The Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 tire was designed for SUVs but delivers the ride and handling qualities of a passenger car tire,” said Michael Martini, president, original equipment consumer tire, BFNT. “It is a perfect match to the Mazda CX-9, which offers the seating and cargo space of an SUV, but drives like a sedan.”

The new Mazda CX-9 will be available in dealer showrooms in early 2007.
