Pirelli Tire North America will supply General Motors with all 19″, 20″ and 21″ diameter tire fitments for the all-new Chevrolet Camaro. The Camaro will be built in three versions: LS, LT, and SS.
The exclusive tire fitment on the 300 bhp LT model will be the new Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season P245/50ZR19XL 104W tire. The P Zero Nero All Season was designed to provide ultra-high performance all season traction for today’s muscle cars.
Pirelli is the exclusive tire supplier for the highest performance versions of the Camaro, and worked closely with GM to provide the new Camaro with excellent traction and handling. The 422 bhp SS is fitted with P Zero 245/45ZR20XL 103Y front, and 275/40ZR20XL 106Y rear tires. Chevrolet and Pirelli also offer an optional dealer-installed 21″ tire and wheel package for the Camaro which replaces the standard fitment with Pirelli P Zero 245/40ZR21XL 100Y front tires and P Zero 275/35ZR21XL 103Y rear tires.
“Pirelli is proud to be a supplier to GM on the new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro – one of the most iconic and beloved muscle-cars ever conceived,” said Tom Gravalos, Pirelli Tire North America’s VP of Marketing, Motorsport and OE Sales. “The new Camaro is a fire-breather – from the LS and LT models all the way up to the incredible LS3 SS with its 422 horsepower. The design and execution of these cars is absolutely mind-blowing, and Pirelli is honored to be the ultra-high-performance tire for the Camaro.”
