Hankook introduces tuner tire

April 14, 2004

Hankook Tire America Corp. introduced its latest tuner tire, the K-106, at the recent International Auto Salon (IAS) in Los Angeles.

The K-106 is, in Hankook's own words, an affordable H-rated high performance tire. It is the second tuner tire introduced by the company this year; the first was the Ventus Z212, a Z-rated ultra-high performance tire.

Hankook also took the opportunity to showcase its new corporate logo at the IAS. The logo features a geometrically styled tread suggesting wings, flying, aerodynamics and speed.
