New Kumho truck tire goes on- and off-road

July 11, 2012

Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. has introduced the KMD41 tire to its medium truck and bus radial tire line-up.

The KMD41 is designed for use in on- and off-road applications such as refuse, construction, mining and logging use. Along with added traction, the KMD41 removes the 55-miles per hour speed restriction of the previous product, increasing the speed certification to 65-miles per hour for normal highway driving.

“The KMD41 is the ideal drive tire for any on/off highway application where high drive traction is required,” states Ron Gilbert, Kumho Tire U.S.A.’s commercial truck tire sales manager. “The KMD41 is also easier on the environment, built with environmentally friendly processing oils.”

Utilizing all new Kumho rubber compounding technology, the KMD41 also provides increased on-road traction and greater resistance to cutting and chipping in of- road conditions. Using Kumho’s proprietary casing technology, the Integrated Component Optimization System (ICOS), casing durability and retreadability have also been improved.
