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.
