Kumho Introduces Higher-Speed Tire for On-/Off-Highway
July 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Kumho Tire added the new KMD41 tire to its medium truck and bus radial tire line-up. The KMD41 is designed for on- and off-road applications such as refuse, construction and mining and logging.
The KMD41 is designed for on- and off-road applications such as refuse, construction and mining and logging.
Along with added traction, the new KMD 41 removes the 55-mph speed restriction of the previous product, increasing the speed certification to 65 mph for normal highway driving.
"The KMD41 is the ideal drive tire for any on/off highway application where high drive traction is required," says Ron Gilbert, Kumho Tire U.S.A.'s commercial truck tire sales manager. "The KMD41 is also easier on the environment, built with environmentally friendly processing oils."
With Kumho rubber compounding technology, the KMD41 also provides increased on-road traction and greater resistance to cutting and chipping in off-road conditions. Using Kumho's proprietary casing technology, the Integrated Component Optimization System, casing durability and retreadability have also been improved.
The KMD41 was designed without the use of high aromatic oil (vacuum-distilled crude oil). It uses high aromatic oil-free technology in an effort to reduce unnecessary hazardous materials from entering the air. The KMD41 can also be retreaded.
