Kumho eco technology for Crossover VehiclesApr 7th 2010
Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., April 6, 2010--
For drivers joining the growing segment of crossover utility vehicle owners they need look no further than Kumho Tire's all-new eco Solus KL21 for replacement tires. With new technology inside and out, the eco Solus KL21 is the latest member of Kumho's eco Solus family and provides the perfect blend of handling, comfort and durability for today's crossover vehicles. All that while saving a tank of gas per year! "Kumho's newest rubber compounding technology was used to lower the tire's rolling resistance to unheard of levels, increasing the gas mileage of the vehicle," states Armand Allaire, Kumho Tire USA's National Vice President of Sales.
Staying true to Kumho's heritage, the eco Solus KL21 is the latest and greatest Kumho tire that delivers all season traction, excellent handling and long mileage but is designed specifically for the crossover segment. As crossovers have a higher center of gravity compared to a sedan, stability is vital. The straight rib design and solid center rib greatly enhance handling and stability and give consistent tread stiffness for precise steering feel. All season traction is provided by a unique tread compound that improves low temperature grip while lowering the rolling resistance of the tire. The eco Solus KL21 is also easier on the environment, lowering the recurrence of rubber dust particles as the tire wears by as much as 10%!
Outstanding all-season traction, a 60,000 mile limited tread wear warranty and lower fuel usage all in a tire that is easier on the environment makes the eco Solus KL21 the perfect fitment for crossover vehicles. Eco Solus KL21 is available in 21 sizes to fit 16" to 20" diameter wheels and comes in T-, H-, and V-ratings. Eco Solus KL21 is now available for sale to coincide with the upcoming 40th Anniversary of Earth Day on April 22nd.
Solus KL21 is the second product from Kumho's eco-friendly line of tires to be launched this year. Eco Solus HM, a premium high mileage tire with a 100,000 mile limited tread wear warranty, best suited for passenger cars and minivans, is currently on sale.
