Toyota Motor Corporation has selected Yokohama Geolandar X-CV tyres as original equipment for its new Tundra and Sequoia.
The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., has announced that it has begun supplying its Geolandar X-CV tyres as original equipment (OE) for Toyota Motor Corporation’s new Tundra, the automaker’s full-size pickup truck, and its new Sequoia full-size SUV.
Both models went on sale in the North America and Latin America markets. Yokohama Rubber is supplying three tyre sizes for the Tundra—265/60R20 112H, 245/75R18 112T, and 265/70R18 116T—and two for the Sequoia—265/60R20 112H and 265/70R18 116T.
The Geolandar X-CV tyres being supplied for the Tundra and Sequoia feature a specially tuned tread pattern and a newly developed compound that fulfill both models’ need for superior steering stability and the excellent braking performance on both dry and wet roads. The tread pattern and new compound also achieve the normally difficult combination of outstanding wear resistance and greatly reduced rolling resistance.
The Geolandar X-CV represents a new dimension in highway terrain tyres, which focus on high-speed performance and maneuverability. Geolandar is Yokohama Rubber’s global brand of tyres for SUVs and pickup trucks, and the Company is accelerating the expansion of the brand’s line-up to meet increasingly diversified needs in the market.
