LAS VEGAS (Nov. 5, 2002) — Pirelli Tire North America Inc. announced at the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week trade shows in Las Vegas that the company's new P6 Four Seasons tire has received several new original equipment fitments.
In North America, the new all-season tire is OE on the Lincoln Town Car, Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis. The company said it is awaiting official word on OE fitments for new models from Saab, Jaguar, BMW and Daimler-Chrysler.
The P6 Four Seasons is already OE on a variety of European models, Pirelli said, including Audi, Volvo, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and BMW. The Rome, Ga.-based tire maker said the new P6—which claims higher mileage, low rolling resistance and improved fuel economy—is its first OE tire for North America's high-performance all-season market.
