Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. will open an original equipment office in Detroit, Mich., on Feb. 1 in an effort to pursue original equipment fitments in the United States. "We are committed to developing OE business in the U.S.," says Dave Hudrlik, Kumho´s vice president of sales.

Earlier today at Kumho´s dealer meeting in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico, company officials announced that Kumho has obtained a 19-inch fitment on a high-end crossover vehicle that will be released in 2008. They did not identify the vehicle.

Hudrlik says Kumho will pursue high-end fitments. "We are not going to put the Kumho brand on an entry-level vehicle."

Kumho plans to announce more U.S. OE fitments "very soon."
