Luxury car manufacturer BMW has selected Bridgestone tyres as original equipment for the new 3 Series model.
A combination of standard touring and Run Flat Technology (RFT) tyres have been selected to run across the BMW 3 series range.
With a strong focus on safety and balanced performance, the chosen tyres have been introduced to the European market for 2012.
Edwin Van der Stad, Director Sales, Consumer Business Unit for Bridgestone Europe, said: “Bridgestone is proud to continue its long-standing partnership with BMW in the development of premium touring and high-performance tyres.
“Today nearly all BMW models, right across the range, are fitted with Bridgestone conventional and RFT tyres as original equipment.”
The 2012 BMW 3 Series is fitted with ultra high-performance Bridgestone Potenza S001 RFT tyres and is available in a range of six sizes for 17-, 18- and 19-inch rims.
Standard and RFT versions of the Bridgestone Turanza ER300A Ecopia touring tyres are available in two sizes to fit 16-inch wheels.
