Kumho tyres have come a long long way.
So long, that they have just passed the rigorously high standards of Audi and become the OE tyre for Audi's best selling SUV, the Q5.
The tyres that will be the contact patch between the Q5 and the road will be Kumho's CRUGEN Premium KL33 model.
Made in Kumho’s factory in Macon, Georgia, USA the CRUGEN series of tyres were specifically developed in response to the emergence of urban SUVs, for which the CRUGEN Premium KL33 is a top-selling product.
The KL33 offers exceptional on-road handling and braking, plus excellent high-speed stability, making it a sought-after product in its native Korea. It also provides the quiet running and ride comfort required of such an up-market vehicle like the Q5.
Furthermore, its tread pattern is designed to improve driving stability and is abrasion resistance, as well as semi-knurling, 3D blocks and a quartet of wide grooves help ensure safe progress on rain-covered roads.
