Goodyear Tires Chosen for 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392
AKRON, Ohio, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently unveiled and scheduled to be produced this fall, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 and the Dodge Challenger SRT with the supercharged HEMI® Hellcat engine will become among the most desired ultra-performance automobiles on the road. And helping to apply the traction to the road and the race track on the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 models will be Goodyear Eagle tires.
The standard fitment will be Goodyear Eagle RS-A2 tires in a 245/45ZR20 size, with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires as an option for "serious grip and handling," according to Dodge and SRT engineers.
The car's performance-designed exterior maintains the Challenger's original muscle car heritage while the all-new, driver-focused cockpit is intended for true performance enthusiasts "with stunning style, premium materials, world-class craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology."
Goodyear's Eagle RS-A2 features all-season, high-performance traction with a unique asymmetric tread design. The available Eagle F1 Supercar tire is a race-inspired model that helps enhance a car's dry traction and cornering grip through the use of large tread blocks and a unique tread rubber compound.

"Key original equipment fitments, such as this selection, help to further Goodyear's position as a brand of choice for those who desire premium performance tires."
