Yokohama Tire rolls out new Geolandar X-CV tire for SUV and Crossovers and will now be available for sale in the U.S.
The new replacement tire fills the need with 23 W-speed-rated sizes, covering nearly all 18- to 22-inch luxury SUV/crossover fitments.
“The X-CV is definitely luxury meets performance,” said Bob Abram, Yokohama’s senior manager of product planning. “It’s specifically engineered for luxury SUVs and crossovers, and is built for long-lasting, powerful all-season traction and braking.”
Benefits of the GEOLANDAR X-CV include:
- Powerful braking is insured with an asymmetric tread pattern that is coupled with 2D and 3D sipes for reliable, short-stopping distance in wet and wintery conditions.
- Long-lasting treadlife is achieved via a wide, flat construction profile that provides a rectangular contact patch that evenly distributes stresses for long, even wear.
- Precise handling comes from the reinforced shoulder and two centers rib that enhance stability and dry handling.
- A hush-quiet ride is accomplished by a staggered tread pattern in a five-block sequence which reduces pattern and road noise.
