The Mercedes-Benz S-Class will feature three different types of Hankook tires as original equipment. The tires are designed to perform in summer, winter, and all-season conditions.
They will have an “MO” label on the wall that stands for “Mercedes Original.” Mercedes-Benz only uses tires with this seal of approval as original equipment.
The tires must perfectly match the model in question and must meet up to 50 checks. This ensures that they meet the quality requirements of the Mercedes-Benz Group for comfort, precision, and safety.
“We are very proud to be the original equipment supplier for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class,” said Jeongho Park, executive vice president and director of OE Division at Hankook Tire. “The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is considered the absolute top of the luxury segment in the global automotive industry. We see this as confirmation that our products meet the highest requirements across different markets.”
Hankook has provided tires for a previous model. This time, the tire manufacturer will provide original equipment for a larger number of different tire types and sizes. This is after receiving approval for the S-Class. The tires will be available in a range of different sizes.
