FORT MILL, S.C.—Continental A.G.'s ProContact TX tire was chosen as the standard OE fitment on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited Edition. The Chrysler Group L.L.C. approved the fitment in size 255/55 R 18 for the 4x2 models and size 255/60 R 18 for 4x4 models.
Both models will appear on showroom floors in the third quarter.
The ProContact TX is a touring performance, all-season tire with a low density undertread compound that ensures impacts and road vibrations are absorbed, the company said.
