CEAT Tyres, India’s leading tyre manufacturer, has announced its association with Mahindra for the 2020 new-gen Thar in the country. The Indian automaker premiered the next-gen Thar on 15th August. Mahindra Thar won the hearts of the automobile enthusiasts since its arrival in 2010. The 2020 Mahindra Thar will be launched in two variants: 16-inch and 18-inch tyre size. CEAT will be the official tyre supplier for both the SUV models. CEAT’s CZAR AT tyres are specially designed for the Mahindra Thar keeping in mind the aggressive styling and design of the SUV.
CEAT Tyres will give the Mahindra Thar users control and manoeuvrability on different terrains.
