Kumho Tire U.S.A., Inc., one of the world's leading tire manufacturers, announced that its Solus KH25 high performance tire has been selected by Dodge as one of the official tire fitments for the 2013 Dodge Dart SE, SXT and Rallye trim levels. The Solus KH25 is a high performance touring tire for sporty sedans like the Dodge Dart providing incredible steering response, ride comfort, low noise impact and impressive all-season traction. Production started for the Dodge Dart in early May and will begin arriving in Dodge dealerships across the country in late June.
"The all-new 2012 Dodge Dart is an incredible new vehicle and we are very proud Dodge selected our Solus KH25 high performance tires for its SE, SXT and Rallye trim levels," said Rick Brennan, vice president of marketing for Kumho Tire U.S.A. "The Solus KH25 has a strong track record with many other vehicles on the market, so the Dodge Dart is in great company."
Designed to deliver traction and superior mileage, along with greater handling, the Solus KH25 will come in two tire sizes. For the Dodge Dart SE trim level, the tire size will be the Solus KH25 205/55R-16, which is an all season tire with black sidewalls. For the SXT and Rallye trim levels, the Dodge Dart will sport the Solus KH 25 225/45R-17 all season with black sidewalls.
Other features include an all-season tread compound molded into a symmetric design that combines notched shoulders, independent intermediate tread blocks and continuous center ribs. A fine tuned footprint shape allows for long-lasting and even tread wear, while the optimized design and exacting manufacturing process reduces vibrations and road noise to deliver a comfortable and safe ride.
