Kumho’s Solus TA31 Will Be OE on 2017 Chrysler Pacificas
Kumho Tire Co. Inc.’s Solus TA31 in 20-inch (245/50 R 20) and 17-inch (235/65 R 17) sizes will be an original equipment (OE) fitment on the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan.
The fitment will cover the U.S. market as well as Korea and Europe, where the Pacifica is offered as the Grand Voyager minivan.
The company says the Solus TA31 is an all-season premium touring tire that offers great in-car comfort and driving performance. Its unique tread block and pattern substantially reduces road noise and the reinforced block offers exceptional handling and braking on dry roads, which translates into excellent ride comfort.
Kumho has been an official OE tire supplier to FCA US for a variety of models beginning with the Chrysler Sebring in 2006.
“The deal is yet recognition of our technological prowess and brand power, and we expect it will help enhance our brand recognition in global markets,” says Hyun-Ho Kim, senior vice president at Kumho Tire. “We will keep enhancing our expertise and brand power for continued partnership with world-renowned car manufacturers and greater global market share.”
Over the years, Kumho has supplied tires to Daimler-Benz, BMW, Volkswagen and FCA US.
