CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — Hankook Tire America Corp. has introduced the Kinergy PT (H737), a premium touring all-season tire that is the first product made exclusively at the company's new plant in Clarksville.
The Kinergy PT is optimized for long-distance travel, safety and driving performance through enhanced traction, the company said.
The tire features a specially formulated tire compound to enhance traction in all conditions and a strong rolling resistance profile to improve mileage performance. The tread design features a high-stiffness center rib and circumferential out grooves for optimized water evacuation, providing improved traction in both wet and dry conditions.
When temperatures dip below freezing, the tire's wider footprint will provide a better cornering response and improved handling, Hankook said.
The tire also carries a 90,000-mile warranty that includes road hazard coverage; 30-day free trial; and a UTQG rating of 860/A/A.
The Kinergy PT will be one of the primary tires produced at Hankook's Clarksville plant, its first production facility in North America.
The tire will be available for purchase starting Sept. 25 through Hankook-certified dealers. For more information, visit hankooktire.com/us.
