Goodyear tyres have been chosen to supply the Original Equipment tyres for the two new versions of the snazzy Fiat 500X in Europe. The tyres have been carefully selected to meet the needs of the newly-revealed Fiat 500X.
As most of my readers will know , I have a soft spot for Goodyear tyres and all that they do.
The decision by Fiat to fit Goodyear tyres to their new 500X is not ground breaking ,but any go news helps sell them tyres.
When car makers fit tyres as original equipment, they will get a certain replacement figure when the first tyres are replaced, which as i say is good news for Goodyear tyres.
Goodyear tyres have been chosen for two out of the three models
Of course, the new Fiat 500X compact X over will be available in three different models and styles. As a result, these cars will also be available in different drive options. Consequently, two off-road focused versions and also the 4 wheel drive 500X cross+ and the front wheel drive 500X cross.
Goodyear have been selected to have their tyres fitted as original equipment. So, on two of the above versions of the up market models for the European market. So a great honour for this famous tyre company.
To the people that read my articles. Then they know that I have always been a big fan of the Goodyear tyre company. Of course, they were the ones that gave me my first managerial post, way back in the 1970’s and I have been a fan of their tyre products ever since.
Fiat have selected two different tyres from the Goodyear range
the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 tyre will be fitted to the more robust model of the new X over. So to help give the car a smooth ride. The tyre size will be 225/45R18 with the 91Y load rating. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 assists the car with excellent braking and steering qualities.
The urban centered models will be fitted with EfficientGrip Performance tyres. As a result, the size of the tyres will be 215/55R17 94V. The Efficient grip performance tyre gives an excellent rolling resistance. Which helps with lower emissions, plus gives a superior braking performance to the new Fiat car.
The Goodyear consumer marketing director Hans Vrijsen said… “The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance tyre provides excellent rolling resistance performance and braking performance suitable for a city car, while the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 has a large rim size, offering exceptional braking and handling .We are pleased to offer tyres that not only fit the overall polish and panache of the FIAT 500X but are also customised to fulfill the car’s different driving needs”.
The new Fiat 500X also comes with many added extras depending on the model that you buy, including, Bluetooth, aux-in and USB connections, steering wheel-mounted controls they also fit voice recognition as standard on all versions of the car, although in the past I have struggled to get them to recognise my Yorkshire accent?
