Goodyear announces that it has been chosen by Jaguar Land Rover to supply original equipment for the new Jaguar F-PACE, Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Velar.
Goodyear has developed the Eagle F1 Asymmetric SUV AT for both the new Jaguar F-PACE, the brand’s first-ever SUV with outstanding dynamics and extraordinary design and the Range Rover Velar, which combines elegant simplicity with advanced technology and engineering.
The tires will carry the distinctive “J LR” marking, indicating that these are approved by Jaguar Land Rover for its vehicles with the following fitments: 255/60R18 112W XL, 255/55R19 111W XL and 255/50R20 109W XL.
