Hyundai recently selected Kumho Ture USA as the original equipment supplier for the upcoming 2022 Santa Cruz. The vehicle comes into the market as a sport adventure vehicle that will sport the Kumho Crugen HP71 tires in size 245/60R18.
The Crugen HP71 Kumho tires were developed to meet the needs of urban SUVs and have been acknowledged globally as an SUV-exclusive tire brand. They offer quick performance and handling thanks to improved shoulder blocks and a strong center.
Their wide circumferential grooves and full depth sipes prevent hydroplaning and improve wet weather traction. An additional variable pitch technology helps to reduce road noise and boost fuel economy while maximizing comfort. Kumho is currently making the tires at the plant based in Macon, Georgia.
