Kumho Wintercraft WP72 Tires
The Kumho Wintercraft WP72 is a performance and high performance, winter tire made for passenger vehicles and SUVs. The asymmetric tread design improves the high speed durability. The tread eases the pressure off the tire, avoiding heat build-up along the footprint. As a result, the tire is able to securely perform at high speeds, throughout the performance.
The asymmetric tread design and the stronger winter compound increase the winter weather performance. The high-density siping placement firmly grips the road surface with extra biting edges, while the compound maintains the rubber flexibility in freezing temperatures. The circumferential and angled lateral grooves prevent hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from the footprint.
The Kumho Wintercraft WP72 also enhances the controllability. The asymmetric tread design features a continuous center rib which keeps contact with the road surface throughout the performance. The better road contact the tire boosts the steering responsiveness and the driving stability. This promotes a quicker and more precise steering response and a secured structural durability while the tires are in motion. The high-siping density also boosts the braking power. They generate friction between the tire and the road surface, greatly shortening the braking distance. The shoulder block pattern firmly grips the cornering and maneuvering power with the use of extra biting edge.
- ControllabilityThe better road contact and the stronger traction improve the handling and the braking capability in winter conditions.
- SeasonThe winter compound and the detailed tread design increase the winter weather grip, while the grooves prevent hydroplaning.
- PerformanceThe high speed durability is ensured with the heat resistant pressure distribution, enabling the tire’s best high speed ability.
