Kumho launches two new commercial tires

Kumho Tire has launched two new commercial trailer application tires for regional and long-haul applications.

The KRT12 is a new regional hauling tire which was engineered and designed to enable the tire to handle extreme high scrub conditions and provide enhanced durability with even wear. Available sizes include 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 11R24.5.

The SmartWay-verified KLT12e technology and design features incorporate a rib style tread platform with a balanced casing profile to provide reduced rolling resistance for enhanced fuel efficiency and extended mileage performance in long haul applications. Available now in size 295/75R22.5 and later in the fall look for 285/75R24.5, 11R24.5, 11R22.5.

“We have feverishly introduced new innovative products in our passenger and light truck lines over the past several years which have performed extremely well in the market and we determined that it was time to apply the new technology and compounds to our commercial lines,” said Harry Choi, president and CEO of Kumho Tire.  “Fleets and owner-operators value a high performing product that will significantly reduce fuel costs and still provide the durability they require for rough driving conditions and achieve the level of mileage that they expect.  We are confident that the KLT12e and KRT12 will exceed these standards.”

Both the KLT12e and KRT12 feature innovative compounds designed to provide even wear characteristics and run cool for enhanced mileage.

The KLT12e and KRT12 are backed by a six-year, two-retread warranty.
