Kumho for the man in the van

Kumho’s KC53 is primarily designed for the latest generation of commercial vans and has been optimised to deliver exceptional highway performance.

The heavy-duty KC53 boasts a wide tread and stable block pattern ensuring outstanding dry handling, even in maximum load conditions. Broad cross-grooves provide precise steering in both dry and wet conditions, while wide straight circumferential grooves minimise the risk of aquaplaning. A robust carcass results in improved traction and higher mileage, while low rolling resistance ensures optimum fuel efficiency.

The KC53 is currently available in some 38 H, T, R and Q rated sizes ranging from 145R13 to 215/60R17, the latest addition to the line-up.

Kumho’s first new European product of 2021 was an all-season tyre for vans and light commercial vehicles. It was created by combining the strengths of the company’s much-praised all-season Solus 4S HA32 passenger car pattern and its existing winter specification van tyre, the PorTran CW11. The result is the PorTran 4S CX11 that ensures safe, secure driving and excellent braking performance throughout the year.

Initially the PorTran 4S CX11 will be produced in 15 sizes ranging from 15 to 17 inches, which between them will accommodate the most popular vans and LCVs operating on Europe’s roads, including: the Ford Transit, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Fiat Ducato, Renault Kangoo and Volkswagen Transporter.

PorTran CW51
A relatively new pattern, CW51 is aimed at providing light commercial vehicles with the best in traction and handling in snowy and/ or icy conditions. It features 3D sipes in the shoulder area for superior handling and reinforced tread blocks for improved stability, and is available in no less than 18 sizes.
