RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.—Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. is rolling out the Road Venture AT51 light truck/SUV and Solus TA11 all-season passenger tires that were previewed at the company's 2014/15 dealer meeting in December.
Both new products began shipping June 1.
The Road Venture AT51, a new product in the Kumho portfolio, was designed for ultimate control on and off pavement, Kumho said.
• Enhanced tread blocks that bite on ice and firmly grip even the most rugged terrain;
• Traction in mud and snow with deep, tapered tread blocks to promote self-cleaning; and
• Cut-resistant dual silica compound optimized for strength and heat dispersion.
The Road Venture AT51 also meets the “severe snow” rating, according to Kumho. These tires were available for purchase June 1 in the U.S. and Canada in 26 LT and 17 P-metric sizes in 15- to 20-inch rim diameters. Sizes range from LT215/75R15 to LT285/55R20,
Kumho said it is offering a 55,000-mile limited warranty on P-metric sizes and a 30-day satisfaction trial warranty in the U.S.
The company is targeting the new tires at owners of full-size pickups and SUVs.
