Kumho tires finished third with Miracle Motorsports at the 24 hours of Le Mans, in June 2006. A winner's temperament seems to best describe this manufacturer's philosophy, who established its general headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. The face of this multinational who won the respect of consumers all over the world, with its ultra safe tires, conceived to get the best out of any car, scarcely reminds of the small factory, born in 1960. Always facing future and innovation, this South-Korean producer monopolizes today the ninth place in the top 10 of the greatest tire manufacturers. Facts, speak better than words: in 2002, Kumho released the very first 26 inch ultra high performance tire (UHP). The leading word in this manufacturer's attitude is development. Kumho has planned to double its production by the end of 2007.
