Kumho tyres OE on Volkswagen Atlas
The Volkswagen Atlas is not just the newest member of the VW family, it is also the largest. The seven-seater SUV is primarily aimed at the North American market; however, this heavyweight is also expected to attract buyers in markets such as China, Russia and the United Arab Emirates. Kumho Tire reports that its Kumho Crugen Premium KL33 has been selected as an original equipment tyre for the Atlas, with models rolling off the Volkswagen production line in Chattanooga, Tennessee fitted with the tyre in size 245/60 R18 105T.
“We’re proud to have achieved a further original equipment approval with Volkswagen,” comments Insoo Kim, head of OE sales at Kumho Tire. “Supply of the Crugen Premium KL33 to Volkswagen, the world’s largest car maker, demonstrates yet again the high quality and performance of our products. We will continue to invest in development within the SUV and off-road segments so that we can also offer our customers the best products in future.”
The Kumho Crugen Premium KL33 is manufactured in Kumho Tire’s Gwangju plant in South Korea and contains the company’s latest High Dispersible Micro Silica compound. The tyre is also supplied as original equipment to the Hyundai Santa Fe.
