The Fiat 500X, which was unveiled at the Paris Motorshow last year, is to be equipped with Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance tires in size 215/55 RI7 for the urban car and Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2s in size 225/45 R18 on the sporty version.

“We are pleased to offer tires that not only fit the overall polish and panache of the Fiat 500X but are also customized to fulfill the car’s different driving needs. The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance tire 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,” said Hans Vrijsen, marketing director consumer EMEA.

The EfficientGrip Performance offers an A-rated wet grip and provides short braking distances and low fuel consumption, while the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 is also claimed to provide short braking distances on wet and dry surfaces and improved fuel efficiency.
