Arrow BMW Chooses Godyear as OE tires for F15 X5

AKRON (July 18, 2013) BMW A.G. has selected the Goodyear Eagle LS2 run-flat as an OE fitment for the redesigned 2014 BMW X5 model.

The Eagle LS2 fitment will be in sizes 255/55R18 (front) and 255/50R19 (rear) and feature Goodyear's RunOnFlat technology, that provides self-supporting run-flat capabilities, even when the tire has deflated.

The BMW X5 is a popular sports activity vehicle that features "a unique blend of utility and refinement, power and performance, dynamic styling and premium luxury." Goodyear said.

Back in '95, I had OE Goodyear Eagles on my previous SUV that I wouldn't give to my greatest enemy. Other than just bad wet traction, I actually hydroplaned on them once too. Scariest thing ever as I just stopped short of a brick wall on an embankment coming off the highway.

Given their stellar reviews on other BMWs, I predict tire sales at Continental and Michelin will go up as well.

Why change unless BMW is getting free tires. I really like the Bridgestone duelers on all of my X5s

Correct and good catch. That's what happens with a quick copy paste of the Good Year press release from prnewswire/marketwatch.
I think its a typo straight from Good Year or PR Newswire as another site also has the same error.
