A 20 inch version of The Firestone Firehawk GT has just been named the original equipment tire for the 2011 models of the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. The Firehawk GT is an all-season, V-rated tire that has enjoyed positive reviews from consumers using it as an aftermarket replacement.

Bridgestone (makers of the Firehawk) said it will outfit the Challenger and Charger with specially designed and engineered tires in size 245/45R20 99V. The Firehawk GT will be included on 2011 Charger with R/T Plus, R/T Road & Track, R/T Max packages and Wheels & Tunes and Rally Appearance Groups.

Michael Martini, president, original equipment, U.S. and Canada Consumer Tire Sales Division, Bridgestone, had this to say: “The Charger and Challenger are icons of motorsports culture, known for their incredible performances both on the road and on the silver screen,” said “The Firestone brand has its own iconic status when it comes to on-road performances in America and linking these brands together is very exciting for us.”

Tire wholesalers looking for a good OE buy would be wise to stock up on these Firehawk models. Hopefully they will be available in OE sizing before Bridgestone’s planned price increase on April 1st.
