Hankook tyres for Toyota Corolla
Toyota has chosen Hankook tyres as original equipment for the North American market 2020 Corolla. The new model, which went on sale in April, wears the Hankook Kinergy GT (pattern H436) in size 205/55R16 91H.
According to Moonhwa Hong, vice president of Hankook’s OE Development Department, the Kinergy GT all-season tyre demonstrates “outstanding key performance in all aspects including wet, dry, and winter performance with excellent water evacuation, improved stiffness, and consistent grip.” Hong adds: “Comfort and noise reduction are also striking features. The tread block pitch sequence and vibration control technology ensure reduced noise and vibration on road surfaces providing drivers a comfortable driving experience.”
Hankook Tire has been supplying original equipment tyres to the Corolla in North America since 2013, and larger sibling the Camry also wears the Kinergy GT there. “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Toyota, a top brand known for its strong commitment to advancing sustainable and next-generation mobility in the automobile industry,” said Hyunjun Cho, head of Hankook’s OE Division. “We hope this growing relationship will foster our global expansion of OE fitments and reinforce our global recognition as a premium brand.”
