TYRES - Kumho introduces affordable passenger car tyre

Show Navigation Menu

Kumho has introduced to the local market what it calls a "modestly priced" tyre for small cars. Named Sense KR26, the new tyre is a development of the Kumho Solus and is specifically aimed at popular models such as the Mazda 3, Hyundai i30, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai i20, Toyota Yaris, Holden Cruze, Honda Jazz.

"The best selling cars in Australia are all small to medium size and the Kumho Sense KR26 is an affordable quality tyre for the most popular passenger cars on the Australian market," says David Basha, National Marketing and Training Manager for Kumho Australia.

"It's no secret that motorists do't like replacing tyres and the Sense KR26 means car owners wo't have to compromise quality when choosing a more affordable tyre for their economy cars. The goal has been to provide a superior tyre for a competitive price and the Sense KR26 has achieved that."
The new tyre features a symmetrical tread design and offers increased stiffness to reduce tyre wear, which is also enhanced by curved lateral grooves that also help channel water away from the tyre to lower the risk of aquaplaning. Kumho claims that the Sense KR26 also rides quieter, thanks to OPST (Optimal Pitch Sequence Technology).
