Goodyear to supply OE tyres for JLR
Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company will supply original equipment tyres 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 and the Range Rover Velar.
The tyres will carry the distinctive “J LR” marking, indicating that these are approved by Jaguar Land Rover for its vehicles. The tyres have been developed by Goodyear engineers to meet the manufacturer’s specific requirements on low rolling resistance, low weight and good off-road performance.
“Designing and engineering original equipment for the new iconic Jaguar Land Rover platforms shows once again Goodyear’s capability to understand and implement the requirements of premium vehicle manufacturers. Supplying equipment to Jaguar Land Rover has been a long-lasting success, made possible by the strong commitment of our engineers which allows us to develop tailor-made tyres that deliver great efficiency, performance and quality for eagerly-awaited, premium SUV’s like Jaguar F-PACE, Range Rover Velar and Land Rover Discovery,” said Nick Harley, Goodyear’s Managing Director OE Consumer EMEA.
For the new Land Rover Discovery, the family SUV with outstanding design, state-of-the-art technology and remarkable versatility, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric SUV was homologated as original equipment.
