Kumho HS51 is a medium-class tyre that combines balanced performance on any surface with driving comfort and safety in various weather conditions. The model features an excellent value for money ratio and ensures a stable drive in any circumstances.
Its character is specially adapted to the conditions that can be met in Europe in summer. With the use of innovative components, the tyre ensures a shorter braking distance, optimum traction and better grip on wet and dry surfaces.
The tyre uses an asymmetric tread composed of two independent parts, each being responsible for different type of performance, thanks to which, the model is reliable regardless of the weather. Its wide grooves mean that water and slush are efficiently drained from under the crown ply and the tread dries quickly.
Kumho HS51 is made of the HDMS rubber compound which is composed of a high-quality microsilica. The compound is lightweight which helps reduce the weight of the whole structure. As a result, rolling resistance and fuel consumption is reduced.
The solid shoulders and optimised tread pattern ensure an adequate distribution of pressures across the whole surface of the tyre. This guarantees an even wear of the tread which translates into full performance throughout its life, regardless of the degree of wear.
