Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. is supporting Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta as the sponsor of the survivor area during the 2017 Race for the Cure.

Nearly 10,000 people are expected to participate in the Atlanta event on June 24, 2017.

Kumho’s involvement in breast cancer causes began in 2012 in Korea, where the tire maker participated in a fundraising campaign to raise breast cancer awareness, promoted the importance of regular self-exams and early detection methods along with the Korea Breast Cancer Foundation (KBCF). Kumho is continuing its work now that it has established its U.S. headquarters in Atlanta.

“Kumho Tire is proud to support an organization that consistently strives to combat breast cancer, educate families and empower survivors,” says Harry Choi, CEO of Kumho Tire USA.

During the event, Kumho will sponsor the survivor area with a hydrating station, and the company will provide 1,000 gifts to survivors. In the post-race area open to public access, Kumho will provide participants and their supporters an interactive experience that features a photo booth, giveaways and atire display to help educate attendees on the importance of selecting the right tires for your ride.

Two Kumho Tires Win Design Award

M-KumhoIdeaAward-1.jpg

Two Kumho brand tires have received the International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) for 2016 in the automotive and transportation category.

Kumho TIre U.S.A. Inc. announced that its winning entries for this year’s IDEA are the Smasher, a future-oriented concept tire, and the Sealant Tire with self-sealing features which is currently on the market.

The Smasher was designed in collaboration with Ssangyong Motor. The tire is optimized for driving in extreme road conditions with features such as suction plates and grinder-shaped tire treads, according to Kumho. The suction plates of the tire enable the vehicle to climb steep slopes by creating a vacuum state when the tire grabs the ground while the grinder structure embedded in the tread block allows for safe driving in any road conditions including rough roads by crushing uneven portions of the road that may damage the tire.

The Sealant tire, also known as the “self-sealing” tire, prevents the air inside the tire from leaking out by automatically sealing the damaged part when debris penetrates the tire tread.

The IDEA design competition is co-sponsored by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) and Business Week magazine.

With the world’s top three design awards under its belt now – the Red Dot Award and the International Forum Design of Germany, and the IDEA Award of the United States – Kumho has its design and technological capabilities recognized by the industry as a whole.

In 2015, Kumho received the Red Dot Award of Germany and the Good Design Award of Japan and the Good Design of Korea.

“With the winning of the IDEA Award this year, we now have all of the top three international design awards under our belt,” says Chung Taek-Gyun, executive vice president at and head of Kumho’s R&D division, “We will continue to build our capabilities in all areas of tire technology including design in order to open a new chapter in the global tire industry.”

In June 2016, Kumho won two prizes at the Green Good Design Award 2016 held in the United States. The winners were the ‘Eco Sense SE 11’ and the ‘Wattrun VS31’ – tires designed for environment-friendly and electric vehicles in Japan and North America, respectively. Kumho also won the Greed Good Design Award, which honors environment-friendly design concepts, in 2015.

Kumho Solus TA31 Will be OE on 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

M-KumhoSolusPacifica-1.jpg

Kumho Tire Co. Inc.’s Solus TA31 in 20-inch (245/50 R 20) and 17-inch (235/65 R 17) sizes will be an original equipment (OE) fitment on the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan.

The fitment will cover the U.S. market as well as Korea and Europe, where the Pacifica is offered as the Grand Voyager minivan.

The company says the Solus TA31 is an all-season premium touring tire that offers great in-car comfort and driving performance. Its unique tread block and pattern substantially reduces road noise and the reinforced block offers exceptional handling and braking on dry roads, which translates into excellent ride comfort.

Kumho has been an official OE tire supplier to FCA US for a variety of models beginning with the Chrysler Sebring in 2006.

“The deal is yet recognition of our technological prowess and brand power, and we expect it will help enhance our brand recognition in global markets,” says Hyun-Ho Kim, senior vice president at Kumho Tire. “We will keep enhancing our expertise and brand power for continued partnership with world-renowned car manufacturers and greater global market share.”

Kumho Tire is offering up to $80 in rebate when consumers purchase a set of four of its eligible premium patterns: the Ecsta 4X II or Ecsta PS91.

The Ecsta 4X II features precise handling, ride comfort and quiet all-season capabilities. The tire is optimized by Kumho’s proprietary Escot Casing Technology, designed to improve steering response and increase tread life.

An ultra-high performance summer tire, the Ecsta PS91, was designed to have optimal stability at high speeds, reduced road harmonics for a quiet ride, and enhanced dry performance characteristics. The Ecsta PS91 features precise handling in wet and dry conditions on and off the track.

The Crugen HT51 is a touring, all-season tire for CUVs, SUVs, and light trucks. Kumho says the HT51 offers stability and traction on snow-covered roads, enhanced driving performance in wet and dry conditions with extended tread life characteristics.

The Solus TA71 is an all-season tire offering quiet comfort and performance on wet and snowy roads, and it’s intended for luxury sedans.

Kumho says the Ecsta PS31 offers a balance of high-speed stability, low road noise, and safety in a value oriented ultra-high performance summer tire.

Two Kumho Tires Win Red Dot Award

M-KumhoRedDotAward-1.jpg

The company says it is the first Korean tire maker to be honored with the award for five consecutive years.

Introduced in June 2015 and sold in Korea, Kumho’s K-Silent Tire is equipped with a technology that reduces noise coming from air vibration in the tire, known as resonance noise, caused by the friction between the tire and the ground. The company says it is the first to develop the noise reduction technology, which is dubbed the K-silent system, and obtained a Korean patent for the design and materials of noise-absorbing components with more patent applications in the pipeline for the proprietary technology in other countries.

The Road Venture MT51 is available in the North American market. The mud terrain tire is capable of handling the harshest conditions while being just as comfortable on the road as off, according to Kumho. The MT51’s aggressive sidewall design prevents damage and enhances grip when in deep mud or rock climbing. Its full-depth, circumferential, zigzag grooves increase traction and help eject stones and mud while balancing on-road driving performance.

“The Red Dot Award is one of the world’s largest venues for exchanges among those interested in industrial design. The receipt of the award for five consecutive years is yet another recognition of the competitiveness of our designs,” says Jeong Taek-Gyun, senior managing director at Kumho Tire R&D headquarters. “We will continue to build our capabilities in all areas of tire technology including design in order to enhance our brand image.”

Held by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany since 1955, the Red Dot Design Award honors winners in the categories of product, communication and concept. It is recognized as one of the world’s top three design awards along with the International Forum Design (iF) of Germany and International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) of the Unites States.
