Video game app is all about Kumho!

Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. has launched “Kumho Tire Drive,  a free racing game for video game and auto enthusiasts alike.

The multi-car racing game application for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch and iPad products was developed by Retired Astronauts Collective, best known for creating addictive interactive apps for iPhones.

“Kumho Tire Drive” lets the gamer become a Kumho-sponsored driver and race for points and worldwide recognition. Kumho racers can earn points by successfully completing each world class track such as "curvy city streets" and a world famous proving ground in Germany.

The "Garage" feature lets racers use their accumulated points to upgrade from an entry-level import tuner to the raw power of a classic muscle car to the limitless torque of an exotic dream car.

The points also can be used to get the latest in vehicle modifications such as hood scoops, rear spoilers, custom paint and decals for their one-of-a-kind vehicles. Perhaps the most unique feature of the game is the “Tire Selector” option: In the Garage, racers can choose the perfect Kumho tires to match the track surface and the weather conditions.

Future Kumho-sponsored video drivers can download the full version of “Kumho Tire Drive” for free from the Apple Store. The app will be available in the first week of January 2011, and will be available shortly thereafter for all phones on Android OS system.

Additional information on “Kumho Tire Drive” can be found on www.youtube.com or www.facebook.com/KumhoTireDrive.
