RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (May 2, 2014) — Chrysler Group L.L.C. has selected Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc.’s All-Season Solus TA31 tires for OE fitment on select 2015 Chrysler 200 models.

Kumho said it’s expanding its partnership with Chrysler by supplying the Solus TA31, in size 235/45R18 94V, as OE on select front-wheel- and all-wheel-drive Chrysler 200 models. The deal took effect beginning in March.

The Grand Touring All-Season Solus TA31—which fits a wide range of coupes and sedans—features a symmetric tread design, according to the Rancho Cucamonga-based tire marketer, “and meets consumer desire for excellent ride comfort while maintaining a very low noise threshold.”

The midsize Chrysler 200 sedan is produced in Chrysler’s Sterling Heights, Mich., plant. The vehicle features a “dynamic stance, wind-swept profile, finely sculpted curves and aggressive wheel-to-body proportions,” Kumho said, resulting “in a sophisticated road presence.”
