Bridgestone has a wide range of tyres to fit the needs and wants of every car and driver; from economical tyres to all out performance oriented ones. Car manufacturers on the other hand, choose tyres based on specifics, such as rolling resistance for fuel economy and cornering abilities. This is part of the Original Equipment (OE) homologation process that car manufacturers carry out for tyres.

There's a long list of cars that have Bridgestone tyres fitted as standard, meeting the demand of manufacturers. Here are six that we've tested that wear Bridgestone tyres from the factory.

1. Aston Martin DB11
POTENZA S007

Aston Martin isn't the only supercar manufacturer that has the POTENZA S007 tyres fitted as standard. Ferrari has them fitted from the factory on the F12berlinetta, too.

2. BMW i3
ECOPIA EP500

The ECOPIA tyres come in a special size that is only suited for the BMW i3

But the difference is that the ALENZA tyres on the QX50 feature Bridgestone's Run-Flat Technology (RFT). When faced with a puncture, the 001 RFT tyres are able to travel at speeds of up to 80km/h over 80km - more than enough time for you to find a tyre shop to replace the affected tyre if necessary.
