Usually, auto manufacturers go with multiple tire OEM suppliers for their products, but this time around, Lamborghini has chosen one single partner, yes you all read it right, one single partner as a tire OEM for their much-famed Huracan Sterrato, and Bridgestone has gone ahead and developed an exclusive tire- the new Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 Thus an all-terrain super car, gets an all-terrain tire.

The team at Bridgestone tells us, The tire’s bespoke polymers, patterns, and tire technologies have been developed to enhance the all-terrain capabilities of the Huracán Sterrato and maximize the thrill and fun of driving on and off the asphalt behind the wheel of this supercar. Amongst many other unique features, one standout feature of this all-terrain tire has to be its capability to run for 80 kms, at a speed of 80 kmph even after a puncture and ever after the psi bar showing 0. This allows the occupants and the driver of the car to be stress free on those unchartered territories where he may take the Sterrato.

On the launch occasion, Steven De Bock, Vice President Consumer Replacement and OE at Bridgestone EMIA, commented: “With the Dueler All-Terrain AT002, Bridgestone has created a bespoke tire that perfectly complements the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato. We’ve created a tire that is just as capable at high speeds on asphalt as it is when driving off-road, providing high-speed stability and off-road capability, rising to meet a completely different set of challenges on mud, gravel, and demanding terrains.”

These custom-designed Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 tires are available in two dimensions- 235/40 ZR19 (96Y) XL RFT for the front wheels, and 285/40 ZR19 (107Y) XL RFT for the rear. The Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 will also be available as an aftersales winter option for the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, available in 235/40 R19 96Y XL and 285/40 R19 107Y XL sizes.

It was 1931 that Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd was established in the city of Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan, however the full-fledged production of tires started only in 1934. From a humble beginning by Shojiro Ishibashi to today, being amongst the leading OEM high quality tire supplier, Bridgestone has come a long way in the last 92 years.
