Maxxis International announced it is supplying original equipment tires for the BMW 1 Series in Europe as of March, 2023. Under the new partnership, Maxxis will supply BMW Group with its Premitra HP5 tire in size 225/40R18 92Y XL HP5.
“We are so pleased to supply tires for the BMW 1 Series, and we want to thank BMW Group for choosing Maxxis,” said Dr. Wally Chen, chairman of Maxxis International. “The fact that we have met BMW Group’s strict quality standards is a source of pride for everyone at our company. As our partnership grows, Maxxis will strive to continue serving BMW Group with 100% Quality, 100% Service and 100% Trust.”
Maxxis says its tire for the BMW 1 Series proves its commitment to both quality and innovation, having received Europe’s highest tire-label rating, A, in both wet grip and rolling resistance. The tire’s compound is mixed using new technology for increased mileage, and its award-winning Premitra HP5 pattern reduces noise and vibration for a balanced, comfortable ride, the company says.
Maxxis has supplied spare tires for the German automaker in Europe since 2015, beginning with spares for the BMW Mini Clubman and the BMW X1, and added the BMW 5, BMW 7, BMW X3 and BMW X4 the following year. The company began supplying spare tires for the BMW 3 in July of 2022, according to the company.
Maxxis adds it supplies spares for BMW Group in other markets throughout the world, and Maxxis’ Supermaxx SC tires are OE for BMW CE 04 e-scooter.
