Latest LCV tyres from Kumho

Korean tyre maker Kumho has highlighted its latest light commercial vehicle tyre offerings, which includes the PorTran KC53 and the PorTran CW51.

The former is primarily designed for the latest generation of commercial vans and has been optimised to deliver exceptional highway performance.

The KC53

Kumho says the heavy-duty KC53 boasts a wide tread and stable block pattern ensuring outstanding dry handling, even in maximum load conditions. Broad cross-grooves provide precise steering in both dry and wet conditions, while wide straight circumferential grooves minimise the risk of aquaplaning.

A robust carcass results in improved traction and higher mileage, while low rolling resistance ensures optimum fuel efficiency.

The CW51

The KC53 is currently available in some 38 H, T, R and Q rated sizes ranging from 145R13 to 215/60R17, the latest addition to the line-up.

A relatively new pattern, the PorTran CW51 is aimed at providing light commercial vehicles with the best in traction and handling in snowy and/or icy conditions.

It features 3D sipes in the shoulder area for superior handling and reinforced tread blocks for improved stability, and is available in no less than 18 sizes.
