ROME, Ga. (May 9)—Pirelli Tire North America Inc. will supply its P6 Four Seasons tires to Ford Motor Co. as standard equipment for the Focus ZTS and as optional equipment on the ZX3, SE and ZX5 Focus models. Pirelli will produce the 16-inch, high performance tires at its Brazil plant for shipment to Ford's Hermosillo, Mexico, and Wayne, Mich., factories. Last fall, Pirelli announced its first original equipment fitments in the North American market, supplying the all-season tires for Ford Motor Co.´s Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car. Then in December, Saleen Inc. named Pirelli´s ultra-high-performance P Zero radials as OE equipment on the production version of the Bonspeed Edition of the Saleen Thunderbird.
