NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 29, 2005) — Bridgestone/Firestone has added 51 sizes to three associate tire brand lines in a bid to offer more fitment options for dealers, the tire maker said.
The tire maker added sizes to lines under its Dayton, Lemans and Duralon associate brands.
Fifteen new H-rated sizes now are available for the Dayton Daytona HR, and three more sizes will be available in the fall. The 15 sizes range from 14- to 17-inch rim diameters. The three sizes coming later are 225/50R16 92H, 215/50R17 91H and 205/40R17XL 84H.
For its Lemans Championship HR tire, BFS added 12 H-rated sizes ranging from 14- to 16-inch rim diameters. The tires are carried by the tire maker's Firestone Complete Auto Care Centers and Expert Tire locations.
Finally, BFS added six metric and 15 P-metric T-rated sizes to its Duralon Vertex IV Plus tire, which is sold primarily through Midstates Distributing Co. Inc. of St. Paul, Minn. Those sizes range from 13- to 16-inch rim diameters.
