Kumho Selected as OE Tire for 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz will come equipped with the Kumho Crugen HP71 product line in a 245/60R18 fitment.

Kumho Tire USA has been selected by Hyundai as the original equipment (OE) supplier for the 2022 Santa Cruz. The new entry into the market designated by Hyundai as a “sport adventure vehicle” will come equipped with the Kumho Crugen HP71 product line in a 245/60R18 fitment.

Kumho’s Crugen series was developed in line with the emergence of urban SUVs and has been recognized worldwide as an SUV-exclusive tire brand, according to the company. 

The Crugen HP71 provides quick handling and performance due to its strong center and improved shoulder blocks. Additionally, its full depth sipes and wide circumferential grooves improve wet weather traction and prevent hydroplaning. Variable pitch technology also boosts the vehicle’s fuel economy and offers comfort and exceptional noise reduction performance. The tires are currently being produced at the Kumho Tire manufacturing plant in Macon, Georgia, the company said.
