Kumhos range of tires is diverse and many markets are catered to when it comes to this manufacturer. Kumho produces ultra high performance tires which compete in racing competitions around the world, while also making sure the needs of the everyday motorist are addressed with well crafted tires that are purpose built to cover a variety of seasons, vehicles and conditions.
Like many manufacturers, Kumho have started to focus more on creating a tire with lower carbon emissions. They utilize special tread in their tires to reduce energy consumption and decrease rolling resistance.
For those of you who are more judicious in your approach to fuel efficient tires, Kumho offers a range that specifically focuses on saving fuel and being as efficient as possible.
The brand measures up decently when it comes to durability. Kumho rates most of its tires’ treadwear between 8 and 10 and their warranties range from 40,000-80,000 miles depending on the model.
The longevity of these tires is increased due to design features such as their XRP technology. This increases the tires resistance to punctures allowing the driver peace of mind when taking on less than ideal roads.
Kumho has packed their tires with various technologies to increase their handling. Traction, steering response and stability are all incrementally being improved upon to improve the brands overall performance.
Advanced Silica gel is used throughout the tire’s contact patch which helps increase traction whether the surface is dry or wet. The tire center rib provides stability throughout the speed range while rigid shoulder blocks carry this stability through corners.
