AKRON, Ohio, January 14, 2009  Dunlop Tires proudly claims original equipment fitments on some of the premier automobiles in the world, and that credibility was enhanced with this week’s selection of the 2009 Hyundai Genesis as the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) Car of the Year.

Dunlop supplies the SP Sport 5000 tire for the exciting new luxury car, offering two sizes – the P225/55R17 and the P235/50R18.

The NAIAS Car and Truck of the Year awards are selected annually by 50 North American automotive journalists.  The honors are announced during Press Days for the NAIAS in Detroit.

“The Dunlop SP Sport 5000 is a terrific tire, and a perfect choice for this award-winning car. It represents the fact that Dunlop is the right brand for luxury and performance car owners – and those who aspire to be owners of those top vehicles,” said Todd Hershberger, Dunlop brand director.

A standard fitment on several top automobiles, along with being an excellent replacement tire choice for many other cars, the SP Sport 5000 features an innovative, asymmetrical tread design, Dunlop’s exclusive Jointless Band Technology, Max Flange Shield and many other technical features.

Dunlop is a global tire brand with an excellent reputation among performance car drivers, and is well-known for its prestigious original-equipment fitments and sports car racing heritage.
