Goodyear Eagle Tires Outfit 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee
AKRON, Ohio, Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — When it comes to the top super cars in North America, many are equipped with the traction and steering response of ultra-high performance Goodyear Eagle tires. This includes the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee, which was recently unveiled.
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NYSE: GT) has announced that its ultra-high performance tire was selected for this high-profile car that is scheduled to arrive in dealer showrooms in early 2012. Designed and built for the core performance enthusiast, the newest Charger SRT8 is available in “Stinger Yellow” or “Pitch Black” with exclusive interior and exterior appointments.
The ultra-performance tread compound on Goodyear’s Eagle F1 Supercar tire helps provide exceptional dry traction and cornering grip to the 470-horsepower automobile.
An asymmetric tread design with large tread blocks on the outer shoulder help enhance dry cornering grip, and a multi-radius mold shape helps to offer precise handling and smooth, even wear.
In addition to the three-season Eagle F1 Supercar offering, the Super Bee models are also available with Goodyear Eagle RS-A 2 all-season tires. This tire features all-season, high-performance traction and a unique asymmetric tread design. The Eagle RS-A 2 has a carbon fiber-reinforced sidewall to help support the outer sidewall to keep more rubber on the road for enhanced cornering and maneuvering.
