Hankook Selected as OE on 2018 Camry

Hankook Tire has been selected as an OE supplier for select Toyota 2018 Camry models, including hybrid and gasoline powertrains with its Kinergy GT.

Hankook Tire has been selected as an OE supplier for select Toyota 2018 Camry models, including hybrid and gasoline powertrains – with the Kinergy GT in size 235/45R 18V.

Hankook Tire’s premium grand touring all-season tire, Kinergy GT, is an ultra high performance tire (UHPT) that provides outstanding driving in all conditions, including wet, dry and winter environments, as well as a quiet and comfortable driving experience.

Engineers at Hankook Tire were able to integrate wide circumferential channel grooves for wet surfaces, optimized block stiffness for dry surfaces, a wide lateral groove design for snowy surfaces and an optimized pitch to reduce the tire noise.

Hankook Tire’s OE expansion to include select models of the 2018 Camry marks another successful milestone, according to the company, as Toyota is known as a top brand within the automobile industry and Camry is a top-selling selling passenger car in the U.S. Hankook Tire’s successful entry to the Japanese market as a supplier for the Camry reflects their global expansion and advancement as a brand.

“Supplying Hankook Tire’s iconic Kinergy GT to Toyota as an OE supplier of the 2018 Camry demonstrates another step in our expanding global recognition as a premium brand,” said Mr. Seung Hwa Suh, Vice Chairman & CEO of Hankook Tire. “This not only proves the company’s leading technology in the tire manufacturing industry, but the high level of trust from OEMs in the auto industry.”
