Bridgestone Americas (Bridgestone) today announced that its Firestone FT140 tire is specified as original equipment on the all-new 2017 Subaru Impreza, a vehicle that redefines the traditional compact sedan and offers drivers a five-door option. The Firestone FT140 tire, designed specifically for the Subaru Impreza, is engineered with a unique tread pattern to provide trusted, all season performance in both wet and dry conditions, while also offering low rolling resistance for enhanced fuel efficiency.

“We have a long history of collaboration with Subaru as the sole tire supplier for the Outback models in North America, and we appreciate the opportunity to build on our relationship and develop the right tire for the all-new Subaru Impreza,” said Mike Martini, president, original equipment tire sales, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “Our team worked very closely with Subaru to design a tire that complements the quality and performance of the 2017 Impreza. It is a vehicle built to last, which is why we designed the Firestone FT140 tire to deliver year-round dependability and durability.”

The Firestone FT140 tire is available as original equipment on the 2017 Subaru Impreza in size 205/50R17. The vehicle is in showrooms now.
