Bridgestone has been selected as an original equipment supplier for the second-generation Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV. This mid-sized SUV will leave the factory fitted with Dueler H/P Sport tires in four sizes across the model range.

This new fitment follows other recent deals with Daimler. In 2014 the Dueler H/P Sport tire was chosen for the new Mercedes-Benz GLA compact SUV, while the C-Class was equipped with Turanza T001 touring tires, Potenza S001 sport tires and Blizzak winter tires.

For the new Mercedes-Benz GLC, Bridgestone is producing sizes 235/65 R17, 235/60 R18, 235/55 R19 and 255/45 R20. The Dueler H/P Sport is designed specifically for the latest-generation SUVs and is said to provide responsive handling combined with high levels of ride comfort, safety and durability.
