Kumho Tire introduces its new environmentally-friendly car tire – the Ecowing ES31. The tire has been designed specifically for motorists. Its minimal level of rolling resistance primarily stems from the stiff centre rib of its tread pattern. Almost 70 percent of the 38 sizes currently offered carry a related B label grade – an impressively high margin by any standard. Other bonuses of the newcomer’s innovative asymmetric design include:
- Four wide drainage channels for optimum wet weather performance
- Aerodynamically designed shoulders for improved wind resistance that feature novel heat dissipation dimples on the inner flank
With sizes ranging from 155/65R14 to 225/55R17, the Ecowing ES31 can be fitted to the vast majority of small and medium hatchbacks, saloons and estates, including such as Ford’s Fiesta and Focus; Volkswagen’s Polo and Golf; BMW’s 1, 2, 3, and 5 Series; Audi’s A1, A2, A3, A4 and A6 models; and the Mercedes-Benz A, B and C Class cars.
