Goodyear to fit Airbus A321XLR with radial tyres

American tyre manufacturer Goodyear Tire & Rubber (Goodyear) is to provide its Flight Radial tyres for Airbus’ much anticipated new A321XLR aircraft. The Flight Radial tyres are a series of advanced aviation products incorporating Goodyear’s Featherweight Alloy Core Bead Technology and strong tread belts with enhanced rubber for dimensional stability, longer service life and increased cut resistance – the supply to Airbus includes main and noise landing equipment for the fuel-efficient A321XLR fleet.

The selection continues the long-standing relationship and collaboration between Airbus and Goodyear and underscores Goodyear’s commitment to supplying the aviation industry with premium products and services.

Dan Smytka, Goodyear’s President of off-highway businesses, said the company’s Flight Radial tyres will be an excellent fit for the aircraft: “Goodyear looks forward to serving as a supplier of the new Airbus A321XLR.”
