In response to India's robust infrastructure development, the company has launched its cutting-edge X-Series product range: JETWAY JUC XM and JETSTEEL JDC XD tyres. Engineered to meet the current demand, these two tyres offer enhanced performance, durability, and efficiency.

With a remarkable 10% longer tyre life, the JUC XM has been developed for tippers and trailers, delivering lower operational costs and increased efficiency, making it an ideal choice. Whereas, the JDC XD tyre is made to handle the demanding requirements of heavy-load transportation, ensuring long-lasting performance and reliability even in on- and off-road conditions. Known for its durability and sturdiness, the tyre is built for use in tippers on drive and dummy axles.

Specially designed for electric buses, the JETWAY JUXe is a revolutionary tyre in the category posited to redefine performance and sustainability standards in the electric vehicle (EV) segment. The ltyresc tyres enable electric buses to travekilometresometers per charge, contributing to enhanced efficiency and operational cost savings. In addition to its energy-efficient design, the JUXe marks JK Tyre's foray into low-noise tyres, aligning with the company's commitment to sustainability. Low-noise tyres not only contribute to a quieter urban environment but also promote eco-friendly transportation solutions, making them ideal for the evolving needs of India's sustainable mobility landscape.
