JK Tyre has launched the next generation of fuel- efficient tyres – the XF Series. It comes in two variants – front axle JETWAY JUH XF and rear axle JETSTEEL JDH XF, ideal for long and regional haul applications, says the company. The XF tyre series is built on the cutting edge advanced technology – ‘lower rolling resistance’ (RRC), which helps improve tyre efficiency by saving up to eight percent fuel in comparison to normal radial tyres. Vikram Malhotra, Marketing Director, JK Tyre, said, “At JK Tyre, 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. 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.
