Hankook Tire America is expanding its OE fitments on the 2011 Lincoln MKT in Canada, adding a 20-inch high performance tire in addition to the 19-inch tire currently in the lineup.
Hankook has supplied Lincoln with Optimo H725 19-inch tires for the MKT production model in both the U.S. and Canada since the 2010 model year. The Optimo H426 is being added as a 20-inch option for the 2011 model year in Canada.
"This addition stems from a successful partnership dating back to 1999," said Bill Bainbridge, Hankook’s director of brand communications. "It’s a testament to the quality of products in Hankook’s line up. We received the award after satisfying all criteria for testing – the results being another perfect fit for the Lincoln MKT."
