BMW has selected the Kumho Tire Crugen HP91 as OE fitment for the new BMW X3 SUV. The UHP tire will be delivered in a 245/50R19 105W fitment on BMW’s latest-generation X3, offering outstanding hydroplaning resistance and driving stability at high speeds.

The Crugen HP91 promises a newly developed compound designed to provide a comfortable ride and excellent wear characteristics. The tread design maximizes steering stability by reinforcing rigidity and also creates a balanced contact patch with the road. The HP91 also features four wide circumferential grooves for enhanced performance on wet surfaces for all-season traction and control.

BMW began production of the new X3 at their Spartanburg factory in June of last year and the tires are manufactured at Kumho’s Gwangju plant in the South Heolla Province of Korea.

“Kumho’s high levels of quality and engineering were the key success factors,” said Harry Choi, CEO of Kumho Tire USA. “Kumho Tire is fully committed to its continuous innovative development on products and maintaining exceptional service to our partners. “

Kumho Tire’s original equipment tires are also installed on BMW’s 1-Series, 2-Series, 3-Series, Volkswagen’s Polo and more.
