STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (Jan. 27, 2014) — Chrysler Group L.L.C. has extended Nexen Tire Corp.'s OE supply agreement for the Chrysler 200 to the 2015 model, continuing a contract that began with the 2014 Chrysler 200 model.
The 2015 model year vehicle once again will be fitted with Nexen's CP671 high-performance, all-season tire. Three fitment sizes will be available, including 215/55R17, 235/45R18 and 235/40R19.
The CP671 is built with four circumferential grooves in the tread for anti-hydroplaning performance. Other features of the tire help to suppress noise and improve comfort, Nexen said.
Chrysler and Nexen announced the 2014 contract, which covered the Dodge Avenger as well, last October. In North America, Nexen also supplies the U.S. assembly plant of South Korea's Hyundai Motor Co.
When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
