Kumho Tire has introduced two new commercial trailer application tires to its North American market: the KLT12e and KRT12.
Both the KLT12e and KRT12 feature advanced compounds that provide even wear and run cool for enhanced mileage. They are also backed by a six-year, two-retread warranty.
The SmartWay-verified KLT12e design features a rib-style tread platform with a balanced casing profile to provide reduced rolling resistance and extended mileage performance in long-haul applications. It is available in size 295/75R22.5. By quarter three, it will be available in 285/75R24.5, 11R24.5, 11R22.5.
The KRT12 is a regional hauling tire engineered to handle extreme high scrub conditions and provide enhanced durability with even wear. It is now available in sizes 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 11R24.5
“We have feverishly introduced new innovative products in our passenger and light truck lines over the past several years which have performed extremely well in the market and we determined that it was time to apply the new technology and compounds to our commercial lines,” said Harry Choi, president and CEO of Kumho Tire USA, Inc. “Fleets and owner-operators value a high performing product that will significantly reduce fuel costs and still provide the durability they require for rough driving conditions and achieve the level of mileage that they expect. We are confident that the KLT12e and KRT12 will exceed these standards.”
