The Royal Wedding was a massive cause of celebration – even for Pirelli tyres.
The Italian tyres company has reported on its official Facebook page that journalists made the SEO Marco Tronchetti smile when they pointed out that Queen Elizabeth’s car had Pirelli tyres during William and Kate’s wedding.
“It is obviously a moment of pride, as well as proof of Italian technology’s higher quality,” he remarked after the comments during the Santa Margherita Regate. “We would like to thank whoever uses our tyres for their cars. Moreover, 50 % of luxury cars like Ferrari, Porsche and Bentley use Pirelli.”
Apparently, according to the Facebook entry, it’s been more than eight years since Her Majesty last had new tyres fitted on her Bentley, and although she’s probably not clocked up excessive miles in the limousine, it’s still worth pointing out that some tyre and vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing tyres every six years to avoid risks associated with tyre aging.
