Bridgestone expands OE sales with premium partner Dueler HP Sport tyre for new MercedesBenz GLC SUV

Aug, 05 2015

Bridgestone tyres were selected by Daimler for the 2015 worldwide launch of the second-generation Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV. The luxury mid-sized SUV leaves the factory fitted with Dueler H/P Sport tyres in four sizes across the model range.

This new fitment follows other recent Bridgestone successes with Daimler. In 2014 the Dueler H/P Sport tyre was chosen for the new Mercedes-Benz GLA compact SUV, while the C-Class was equipped with Bridgestone Turanza T001 touring tyres, Bridgestone Potenza S001 sport tyres and Bridgestone Blizzak winter tyres.

For the new Mercedes-Benz GLC, Bridgestone is producing sizes 235/65 R17, 235/60 R18, 235/55 R19 and 255/45 R20. Bridgestone developed the Dueler H/P Sport tyre specifically for latest-generation SUVs, providing these vehicles with responsive handling combined with high levels of ride comfort, safety and durability.
