Kenda adds 12 sizes to passenger line

Posted on March 31, 2014

Kenda U.S.A.  has released 12 new passenger tire sizes. Ten of the new sizes were released in the VezdaEco, Kenda’s low rolling resistance tire.

The company says it added sizes to meet the growing demands of larger OE fitments.

“The demand for the VezdaEco has taken off recently and we believe the new sizes will continue the momentum with our customers," says Eric Yang, automotive marketing manager.  

“The customers who have purchased these tires see all of the benefits the Vezda’s bring to the table, including increased fuel economy. The expanded size range will not only add to the coverage in the alternative fuel vehicle market, but cover several new OE models.”

The new sizes are:

Kenetica:

 

235/65R16 103T

235/65R18 106H

VezdaEco :

 

215/55R16 93H

215/55R16 93H

205/50R16 87V

235/55R18 100V

225/45R18 95W

225/55R18 98H

235/55R17 99V

225/55R17 99V

245/50R18 100V

225/40R18 92H
