JK Tyre launches fuel efficient XF radial tyre series for haul applications


Home-grown tyre manufacturer JK Tyre & Industries Ltd on Thursday launched the next generation of fuel-efficient tyres - the XF Series for long and regional haul applications.

The XF fuel-efficient tyre series comes in two variants - front axle JETWAY JUH XF and rear axle JETSTEEL JDH XF and delivers savings to customers in terms of cost per kilometer (CPKM) while also improving mileage, the company said in a release.

Built on ‘lower rolling resistance’ (RRC) technology the XF series tyre helps improve tyre efficiency by saving up to 8 per cent fuel in comparison to normal radial tyres, the company claims.

Vikram Malhotra, Marketing Director, JK Tyre & Industries Ltd, said, “At JK Tyre & Industries, it’s our constant endeavor to cater to the needs and requirements of our customers to enhance their driving experience. With our game-changing XF series, we want to give our customers the next generation of fuel-efficient tyres. This further underscores our promise to deliver to the evolving needs of the market and introduce tyres that help maintain pace with the changing market requirements.”

The XF tyre series is created using the innovative JETOCT technology that helps in the reduction of heat buildup in the carcass, resulting in improved durability. In addition, aided by the new tetra beam belt, this series also maintains a higher tread stiffness, allowing for greater number of retreads. The technology used to create the XF series has been tested and validated at the Raghupati Singhania Centre of Excellence- RPSCOE.

The XF Series tyres are now available across JK Tyre authorized dealers in the country.
