Hankook Kinergy GT Tires Will Roll on 2018 Honda Accord and 2018 Toyota Camry

Posted on October 16, 2017

Hankook Tire Co. Ltd. has earned original equipment fitments on the 2018 models of two of the bestselling cars in the U.S., the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. Hankook Kinergy GT tires will be available on both vehicles sold in the U.S.

The tire maker says it has been selected as the main OE supplier for the 10th generation 2018 Accord. It will be fitted with Kinergy GT 225/50R17.

The Camry will wear Kinergy GT tires in size 235/45R18.

The Kinergy GT is an ultra-high performance tire that Hankook says provides performance and comfort. The tire's wider circumferential grooves provide maximum water evacuation and wider lateral grooves allow confident driving on wet and snowy surfaces. The Kinergy GT tire also has a wider contact area, maximizing steering response and stability to provide a comfortable and engaging driving experience.

Seung Hwa Suh, vice chairman and CEO of Hankook, says the OE fitments “not only proves the company’s leading technology in the tire manufacturing industry, but the high level of trust from OEMs in the auto industry.”
