Kumho has made impressive progress since returning to the UK truck tyre market earlier this year, and has now further improved its offering with KXS10 – a versatile new steer tyre suitable for both regional and long distance operations.
For many years a supplier of tyres for the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and more recently the Fiat Freemont, Kumho has now had its products selected for fitment to another member of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) range – the new Jeep Renegade.
The eagerly awaited completion of Kumho’s first North American tyre plant is set to occur in the early part of 2016, and underlines the company’s aim of strengthening its position in this key automotive market as well as its overall plans for global expansion.
In the passenger car tyre replacement market in Europe all season tyres have become increasingly important in recent years. Potential reasons for this could be population growth in the urban areas or mild winter months.
