DaimlerChrysler A.G. has picked Goodyear's Assurance premium car tire featuring ComforTred technology as original equipment for 2006 models of its Chrysler 300C, Dodge Magnum R/T and Dodge Charger R/T.
It is the first OE fitment for the tire line, which Goodyear called the most successful new product launch in its history.
The Assurance was introduced as an aftermarket tire in early 2004
The tires-size P225/60R18-were tested and tuned for the high-image vehicles at the tire maker's 7,250-acre test facility in San Angelo, Texas, according to Goodyear.
``From the beginning, the goal was a world-class tire line targeted at luxury and premium vehicles. Our Assurance line of tires were built with this objective,'' said Mike Parnell, Goodyear's vice president, original equipment tires.
