The latest version of the most serious Mercedes-Benz 4×4 offering, the G-Class, is now fitted with Kumho’s Solus KL21 as original equipment. The Korean firm has begun supplying the Solus KL21 in size 265/60 R18 110H, adding another string to its Mercedes-Benz original equipment agreement bow – Kumho began supplying the A-Class (Solus KH 15 in size 185/65 R15) in 2007 and the Viano X-Clusive (Ecsta KU19) in 2008. Korean-market Sprinter and Actros models, along with Daimler AG’s Smart, are also delivered with Kumho tyres as original equipment.
The Solus KL21 is produced in Kumho’s factory in Vietnam, the company’s most modern tyre plant. It is available in various 16 to 20-inch sizes.
