The Jeep Division of FCA US LLC is partnering with Yokohama Tire Corp. to bring the new Jeep Compass into the market on Yokohama tires.
The Yokohama Geolandar G055 was selected as a tire supplier for the 2017 Jeep Compass. The fitment will cover the North American market, including Canada, in size 225/55R18 98H.
“This selection was made after many years of testing and validation to provide a tire that meets the exacting specifications for FCA US,” says Andrew Zeisser, Yokohama's director of OE sales.
“The Geolandar G055 will provide more performance and comfort for Jeep Compass customers. “It features all-season performance and extended tread life, thanks to Yokohama’s advanced orange oil technology.”
Benefits of the Geolandar G055, which was rolled out two years ago, include:
* Transition grooves with notch sipes that work together to create biting edges while maintaining tread block rigidity for improved mileage and handling in wet and wintry conditions.
* Circumferential zigzag grooves designed to resist hydroplaning and provide aggressive edges even as the tread wears.
* An integrated shoulder and full nylon cover that improves stability while resisting irregular wear.
