INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (Aug. 10, 2005) — Kumho Tire USA Inc. held a ride and drive event today in Independence, a suburb of Cleveland, to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Held in conjunction with five area tire dealers, the event allowed consumers to drive three Kumho-shod Mini Coopers on an autocross course for $5. All proceeds benefited the charity, Kumho said.
The dealerships involved include Safeway Tire, Northfield Tire, Enger Tire and Auto, Lou's Tire and 330 Rims. Mark Lindsey of Terry's Tire Town also helped organize the event, Kumho said.
