Kumho Tyre Australia has announced the launch of a new mud terrain tyre aimed at the 4WD Ute and SUV market.
The new Kumho Road Venture MT71 has been designed to offer premium off-road performance and comes to market, the company says, after more than two years of development.
It features an aggressive tread design for enhanced climbing performance and off-road traction, enhanced durability with extra cut and chip resistance, and is designed to deliver exceptional off-road performance and excellent highway safety and stability. It contains seven integrated steel and fabric layers, three-ply high-strength construction, two steel cord layers and two nylon protection plies – all making the MT71 a robust mud-terrain tyre.
“The Road Venture MT71 is a cornerstone product for Kumho because it will deliver the highest level of performance at a truly competitive price and will we believe redefine the serious 4WD tyre market,” said Kenny Chun, National Marketing Manager for Kumho Tyre Australia.
“The Road Venture MT71, has been designed using multiple sizes and specs on multiple platforms across the world, not just one size and one type of vehicle.”
The Road Venture MT71 will be available in 27 sizes that combined will cover the majority of the mud-terrain segment.
