Hankook Tire is expanding its passenger tire segment with the release of the KINERGY PT (H737), a premium touring all-season tire, the company’s first tire made exclusively in the U.S. at its new plant in Clarksville, Tenn. The KINERGY PT is optimized for long-distance travel, safety and driving performance through enhanced traction.
The KINERGY PT utilizes a specially formulated tire compound to enhance traction in all conditions and a strong rolling resistance profile to improve mileage performance. The tread design incorporates a high-stiffness center rib and unique circumferential out grooves for optimized water evacuation, providing excellent traction in both wet and dry conditions. When temperatures dip below freezing, the KINERGY PT tire’s wider footprint will provide a better cornering response and improved handling.
Additional KINERGY PT features and offers include:
· Optimized 90,000-mile warranty that includes road hazard coverage
· 30-day free trial for guaranteed customer satisfaction
· A best-in-class UTQG rating of “860/A/A” – not only the best rating in the PCR segment, but the highest-rated tire in the entire market.
The KINERGY PT tire will be one of the primary tires produced at Hankook Tire’s plant in Clarksville, Tenn., its first tire production facility in North America.
The tire will be available for purchase starting September 25 through Hankook certified dealers.
