JK Tyre & Industries Ltd. has yet again partnered with Hyundai Motor India by becoming the OEM tyre provider for Alcazar. All Prestige variants of Hyundai Alcazar will come with UX Royale 215/60 R17 radial tyres. The announcement comes just days after Apollo became the official tyre provider for the 18-inch tyres seen in the higher trims of the vehicle. Members of the Hyundai Mobility Membership club will also be able to avail additional benefits through this partnership.
The UX Royale tyres come with a 5-Rib asymmetric design, variable draft groove technology, stable shoulder tread blocks, waffle groove, and aero wing design. According to the company, the UX Royale 215/60 R17 tyre is capable of providing a comfortable ride, generating low noise and aid handling. The same tyre also comes as OE fitment on the SX Executive, SX and SX (O) models of Hyundai Creta. Creta comes with 16-inch tyres in the lower variants but the higher-end variants offer bigger 17-inch wheels.
Commenting on the partnership, VK Misra, technical director, JK Tyre and Industries said, “Our previous association with Hyundai for its highest-selling Creta model was a huge success and witnessed an overwhelming response from the customers. The newest collaboration for Hyundai ALCAZAR is a step forward to strengthen our growing relationship with the manufacturer. We are confident that through this partnership, once again we will delight customers with supreme quality tyres and best in class riding experience across all terrains. Our ongoing partnership is a testament to our growing presence in the market while offering end-to-end solutions to the customers. We look forward to a continued partnership with Hyundai Motors India for their upcoming products.”
Commenting on the partnership, Hyundai Motor India, said, “JK Tyre & Industries has joined hands as a tyre partner for Hyundai India’s exclusive membership club ‘Hyundai Mobility Membership’. Through this association, members of Hyundai Club across the country can avail exciting offers on JK Tyre’s products including their Smart Tyres range.
