Kumho Updates Solus Line With TA51a

Feb. 6, 2023

The new Solus TA51a from Kumho Tire USA is designed to offer drivers of sedans, crossovers and SUVs alike a quiet, comfortable ride.

The tire, created specifically for the North American market, "will be a great successor to the ubiquitous Solus product lines which it replaces," Kumho says. The Solus TA51a is made to provide grip and responsive handling in dry, wet and wintry conditions.

Ribs in the tire's main channel grooves dissipate road noise. Four wide channel groves drain water and reduce hydroplaning on wet surfaces. The tire's compounding features multi-function polymers and high dispersion silica for better treadwear and to improve grip in the winter.

The tire's interlocking sipes and chamfered block edges improve the rigidity of the tread block and also increase the tire's contact with the road for better braking and cornering.

The Solus TA51a replaces three other tires: the Solus TA71, TA31 and TA11.It will be available in 82 sizes, fitting 13-inch to 19-inch wheels. It will have a 65,000 mileage warranty on H-rated and higher options, and a 75,000 mileage warranty on T-rated sizes.

The Solus TA51a also will have road hazard protection and a 30-day satisfaction trial.
