Hankook debuts first American-made tire line

Filed under: Tires — Notch @ 4:00 pm

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, Tennessee.

The KINERGY PT utilizes a specially formulated tire compound to enhance traction in all conditions and a strong rolling resistance profile to improve mileage performance. The tread design incorporates a high-stiffness center rib and unique circumferential out grooves for optimized water evacuation, providing excellent traction in both wet and dry conditions. When temperatures dip below freezing, the KINERGY PT tire’s wider footprint will provide a better cornering response and improved handling.

The Kinergy PT will be one of the primary tires produced at Hankook’s Clarksville plant, its first production facility in North America.
