Nissan has approved Kumho as the original equipment supplier for its 2021 Pathfinder SUV model in the North American market.
The new SUVs will leave the Nissan production line shod with Kumho’s Crugen HP71 pattern tyres in 255/60R18 size.
Kumho says the Crugen range has been developed in tandem with the emergence of urban SUVs, and is now recognised worldwide as an SUV-exclusive tyre brand in its own right.
Its strong centre section and improved shoulder blocks ensure responsive handling, while full depth sipes and wide circumferential grooves optimise the evacuation of water, improve wet weather traction and limit aquaplaning.
The tyre maker claims its excellent on-road performance makes the HP71 the perfect tyre for the new Pathfinder.
