Geolandar X-CV Is a Tire for Luxury SUVs and CUVs

Posted on April 2, 2019

Yokohama Tire Corp. is targeting luxury SUV and CUV consumers with the new Geolandar X-CV. The tire offers a long-lasting treadlife along with all-season traction and braking.

The Geolandar X-CV comes in 23 sizes and is designed for luxury SUV and CUV fitments.

All 23 sizes are W-rated, and Yokohama says the Geolandar X-CV covers "nearly all" the 18-inch to 22-inch luxury SUV and CUV fitments.

Here's a look at the tire's features:

  • The asymmetric tread pattern, coupled with 2D and 3D sipes, provides for reliable, short-stopping distance in wet and wintery conditions.
  • The Geolandar X-CV will last thanks to its wide, flat construction profile that provides a rectangular contact patch, which evenly distributes stresses for long, even wear.
  • Precise handling comes from the reinforced shoulder and two center ribs that enhance stability and dry handling.
  • A staggered tread pattern in a five-block sequence reduces pattern and road noise.

“The X-CV is definitely luxury meets performance,” says Bob Abram, Yokohama’s senior manager of product planning. “It’s specifically engineered for luxury SUVs and crossovers, and is built for long-lasting, powerful all-season traction and braking.”
