Who are Kumho Tyres?

Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, Kumho Tyre is one of the world’s most technology driven, innovative, and progressive tyre manufacturers. Today, Kumho makes tyres for cars and vans, buses and coaches, and trucks and trailers.

With a globalised production base and research and development centres in South Korea, China, Europe, and North America; Kumho has created a range of tyres perfect for the most demanding drivers and which are ready for the world’s most challenging conditions. It means that Kumho tyres are well suited to British conditions, drivers, and cars.

History

Compared to some tyre brands Kumho’s history is short – it was founded as recently as 1960.  But the brand likes to move quickly - where it is short on history, Kumho is long on quality.  So, in its relatively young life Kumho’s been, and continues to be, fitted as original equipment by some of the world’s most prestigious car manufacturers –Hyundai, Mercedes, Kia, Renault, and Volkswagen; to name just a few.

Why Kumho

Enthusiastic drivers will be relieved to know that what we learn on the track we put on the road. Kumho's racing pedigree includes a class win at Le Mans and many years supplying Formula 3 which helped launch the careers of drivers such as Hamilton, Vettel, and Verstappen. Today, Kumho is the tyre of the TCR World Tour – the pinnacle of one of the world's most popular motor sport categories, and one which features cars that look like those on our roads.

And drivers focused on getting from A to B will appreciate the effort that we put into making our tyres as quiet, safe, and comfortable as can be.

Every driver, though, will benefit from the combination of Kumho’s excellent overall cost of ownership, Kumho’s advanced technology, and Kumho’s dependability.

Whatever you drive – petrol, diesel, electric, hybrid - Buy Kumho: you won’t regret it.
