Most people who drive cars will be able to name tyre brands such as Michelin. The Bibendum figure lovingly known as the Michelin Man is engrained in the psyche of many people through the UK. Some of us may have also heard of tyre brands such as Pirelli, Bridgestone, Dunlop and Continental. However I doubt many will have heard of the tyre brand Kumho.
Kumho Tyres not such a new kid on the block.
Kumho Tyres started life as Samyang Tire back in 1960 in South Korea. Over the years Kumho Tyres has slowly developed a solid foothold in the international market and now manufactures in excess of 68 million tyres every year.
With a passion for innovation Kumho Tyres have pushed forward with leading edge technologies establishing research and development centres across the globe. The innovative solutions produced by Kuhmo aren’t just pie in the sky dreams they’ve secured 1st place in the Red Dot Design Awards for the fifth year in succession. Red Dot Design Award endorses the company’s renowned design capabilities. Kumho’s winning entries within the product design category were the K-Silent Tyre and Road Venture MT51.
The tyre choice for the worlds top car brands.
Although some people in the UK may struggle to recognise Kumho as a top tyre brand, the car manufactures certainly recognise Kumho as a world leader in tyres. The Kumho tyre is now the original equipment choice for 3 of the world’s top 5 car brands. The Volkswagen Polo now has Kumho ecowing es01 KH27 fitted as standard to Polo models built at its plant in Pamplona, Spain.
