Hankook has been selected as an OE supplier for select Toyota 2018 Camry models, including hybrid and gasoline powertrains – with the Kinergy GT in size 235/45R 18V.
Hankook’s premium grand touring all-season tyre is an Ultra High Performance Tire (UHPT) that the company says provides outstanding driving in all conditions, including wet, dry and winter environments, as well as a quiet and comfortable driving experience. The Kinergy GT integrates wide circumferential channel grooves for wet surfaces, optimised block stiffness for dry surfaces, a wide lateral groove design for snowy surfaces and an optimised pitch to reduce tyre noise.
Hankook’s OE expansion to include select models of the 2018 Camry marks another successful milestone for the company – the Camry was the number one selling passenger car in the United States in 2016. The company says its successful entry to the Japanese market as a supplier for the Camry signifies the global recognition of the Hankook’s high technological advancement.
“Supplying Hankook Tire’s iconic Kinergy GT to Toyota as an OE supplier of the 2018 Camry demonstrates another step in our expanding global recognition as a premium brand,” said Mr. Seung Hwa Suh, Vice Chairman & CEO of Hankook Tire. “This not only proves the company’s leading technology in the tyre manufacturing industry, but the high level of trust from OEMs in the auto industry.”
