The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
Kumho I`ZEN KW23 is a winter tyre of the medium class. It features directional tread pattern. Better adhesion as well as the driving precision on the wet and slippery surface has been obtained. The tyre efficiently reduces the skid risk. Additionally, it ensures high driving comfort.
Kumho I`ZEN KW23 is adjusted to the winter conditions characteristic for the Mid-European climate. Modern rubber compound with the silica addition was used in the tire’s production. In this way, the tyre resistant to low temperatures action and attrition was obtained. Additionally, the constructors took care of the balanced pressures transfer. Therefore, high mileages were obtained. As a result of the deep tread, even by the significant wear the tyre preserves its’ properties. In order to improve performance on the wet road, directional tread’ carving which performs well even while heavy snowing and rain, was used. Longitudinal and peripheral curved grooves’ system efficiently drains the tyre’s point of contact with the surface. Water and slush are effectively drained sideways which guarantees the reduction of hydro-and snowplaning occurrences. Central rib ensures proper traction while driving on the dry surface. The construction guarantees precise driving. Strong shoulders with narrow and long blocks are responsible for the stability. The carving ensures appropriate grip while cornering as well as stable straight driving. Rounded tyre’s edges perform well also while driving on the irregular surface, e.g. driving in the potholes.
Kumho I`ZEN KW23 winter tyre is directed to the passenger cars of the medium and higher class. It is especially recommended for the city driving. It is the medium class tyre ensuring perfect ratio of performance to the price.
