GREENVILLE, S.C. (May 31) — BFGoodrich Tires has delivered its first wave of 5,000 Baja T/A Military Edition tires to the U.S. military.
The tires will be used on High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles, or Humvees.
The company said it is on track to complete its contract, which expires in the fourth quarter. The Michelin division said it intends to pursue and expand the U.S. military partnership in 2008.
The firm is producing the tires at its Fort Wayne, Ind., plant, where it has expanded its product mix to include larger tires with more complicated constructions.
