Our latest offerings demonstrate our unwavering commitment to delivering high-performance, economically viable, and environmentally conscious solutions. We are confident that these tyres will serve as a dependable companion for fleet operators, ensuring safety on the move.”

JK Tyre’s advanced R&D center in Mysuru and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes have played a crucial role in the development of these products. All four tyres have undergone extensive testing in a variety of conditions to meet the highest standards of quality and performance. The four innovative tyres are:


The JETWAY JUM XM boasts a 4-Star Rating and an RRc value of 4.9 KN/n, making it the most energy-efficient in its category. This next-generation tubeless tyre is designed specifically for buses and trucks to set new benchmarks for fuel economy and cost optimization. This translates to significant fuel savings for transporters, addressing a crucial factor as fuel expenses account for approximately 50% of total operating costs in India. Additionally, reducing fuel consumption will also help to significantly reduce carbon emissions, providing a sustainable and economically viable solution for the transportation industry.


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 low RRc tyres enable electric buses to travel more kilometers 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.

The JETWAY JUXe tyre will also be deployed on TATA Motors’ EV buses, demonstrating a collaborative effort to drive innovation and sustainability in India’s public transportation sector.
