More auto manufacturers are expected to offer Hankook tires
Hankook Tire America Corp. expects to join two more auto manufacturer tire programs by the end of the year.
Earlier this week, Hankook officials announced that General Motors' GM Goodwrench Tire Program now carries Hankook tires.
In addition, Hankook has been part of Ford Motor Co.'s Around The Wheel tire program for three years. In 2005, more than 100,000 Hankook brand tires were sold through Around The Wheel.
Hankook tires are original equipment on 11% of Ford light vehicles in the United States and Canada and make up 1% of OE tires on GM light vehicles in the U.S. and Canada, according to Modern Tire Dealer research.
