Mercedes Benz and Kumho Tire

Kumho Tire, the nation's second-largest tire maker, will supply tires for Daimler AG's luxury multi-purpose vehicle Mercedes-Benz Viano.

The company will supply the German automaker with 10,000 KU19 tires that will be installed on the new Viano X-Clusive sedans. The luxury model will be sold in Europe as a special edition. The tires are designed to be fit for ultra high-speed driving at up to 360 km/h while guaranteeing the comfort of drivers and reducing noise.

Kumho Tire said the supply contract proves the excellence of its technology and product quality, which were strictly tested by one of the world's top carmakers. It expects the supply to improve its brand image and increase sales. A Kumho Tire press release said one of the company's five major business goals for 2015 is to tap overseas markets and to increase supplies to global automakers.

The Korean tire maker has supplied tires for Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedans since last year and is negotiating with Daimler AG to supply products for the carmaker's other luxury models. It is also a supplier for Chrysler and Volkswagen.
