Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. will supply its Road Venture KL78 on a United States version of DaimlerChrysler's Sprinter, which will be sold domestically under the Dodge and Freightliner names.

The tire, in size LT215/85R16, "will be fitted on all four corners of the van, which uses a dual tire set-up on the rear," say Kumho officials.

"This is Kumho's first fitment with a DaimlerChrysler on a vehicle that's sold in the U.S.," says Dave Hudrlik, Kumho's vice president of sales and marketing.

"We're on other DaimlerChrysler vehicles in Europe, such as the Mercedes A Class and the European version of the Chrysler Sebring. But the Sprinter fitment will help give us more recognition and credibility with U.S. consumers and make it easier for our dealers to sell the Kumho brand."
