The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has been selected by The Boeing Company to provide main nose and landing gear tires for its new 777X aircraft, which is scheduled for delivery in 2019.

Building on the success of the Boeing 777 and 787 Dreamliner, the Boeing 777X will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world, unmatched in every aspect of performance, according to Boeing officials.
