A premium touring all-season tire will be the first from Hankook Tire America Corp. to be built exclusively at the company's new tire production facility in Clarksville, Tenn. The Kinergy PT (H737) is optimized for long-distance travel, safety and driving performance through enhanced traction, the company says.
The tire utilizes a specially formulated compound to enhance traction in all conditions, and a strong rolling resistance profile to improve mileage performance. The tread design incorporates a high-stiffness center rib and unique circumferential out grooves for optimized water evacuation, providing traction in both wet and dry conditions. When temperatures dip below freezing, Hankook says the Kinergy PT tire’s wider footprint will provide a better cornering response and improved handling.
Additional Kinergy PT features and offers include:
- optimized 90,000-mile warranty that includes road hazard coverage;
- 30-day free trial for guaranteed customer satisfaction; and
- an UTQG rating of “860/A/A,” which Hankook says makes the Kinergy PT the highest-rated tire in the market.
Hankook certified dealers will begin selling the tire Sept. 25, 2017.
