AICHI, Japan — Bridgestone Corp. and Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. (SRI) have secured original-equipment fitments on the 2023 Toyota Prius hybrid passenger vehicle, joining Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. as contracted OE suppliers.
The fitments are for the latest generation Prius, which went on sale in January. Toyota lists the 17-inch size as OE on the LE versions and the 19-inch size as OE on the Limited editions.
The fifth-generation Prius employs a wide and low stance with large-diameter tires to create stylish designs that appeal to the senses, Bridgestone said. With the fifth-generation hybrid system and second-generation TNGA platform, the new Prius delivers a comfortable driving performance.
