SANTA ANA, Calif.—Yokohama Tire Corp. is adding a crossover-specific aftermarket version of its Geolandar light truck tire line, aimed at owners of luxury SUVs and crossovers.
The Geolandar X-CV launches in 23 W speed-rated sizes in 18-, 19- and 20-inch rim diameters, YTC said.
Features of the Geolandar X-CV include:
- An asymmetric tread pattern that is coupled with 2D and 3D sipes for reliable, short-stopping distance in wet and wintery conditions.
- Wide, flat construction profile that provides a rectangular contact patch for evenly distributed stresses for long, even wear.
- Reinforced shoulders and two center ribs for enhanced stability and dry handling.
- A staggered tread pattern in a five-block sequence for reduced road noise.
The X-CV is the sixth iteration of the Geolandar line.
Others are: G055 all-season; A/T all-terrain; H/T highway terrain; M/T mud-terrain; and X-MT for serious off-roading/rock crawling.
The X-CV is produced in Japan at Yokohama's plant in Shinshiro. YTC did not disclose pricing information.
