New OE approval for Kumho Ecsta PS91!

03 OE PS91 1024

Offenbach am Main, 1 October 2018

As of now Kumho Tyre supplies its Ultra-High-Performance tyre Ecsta PS91 in size 245/45 R18 XL 100Y for the BMW 5 Series (G30) as Original Equipment to BMW plant in Bavarian Dingolfing (Germany). 

The Ecsta PS91 is Kumho`s latest Ultra-High-Performance tyre. The new High Dispersible Micro Silica tread compound stands for maximum grip on wet and dry roads. Thanks to the pattern design with a high positive portion, an extreme sporty and very direct cornering is given. Furthermore the Ecsta PS91 guarantees a well balanced handling and a superior mileage.

Nicolas Kluson, Key Account Manager at Kumho Tire Europe GmbH: „We are happy fitting the BMW 5 Series from now on ex factory with our Ultra-High-Performance tyre Ecsta PS91. The contract shows again our performance devlopping as well as manufacturing tyres. Thanks to the close cooperation Kumho can permanently come back to a technical know-how which only few tyre makers have. Developping and testing tyres for next generation cars means for example to experiment with latest technologies and materials for designing even lighter tyres or designing tyres with an even better rolling resistance requested by car makers or finally designing tyre sizes which are not available yet today. That knowledge helps also improving actual products for example by using optimized compounds at running productions. Thats why we are planning to intensify our cooperation with BMW in the future.“  

Since many years, Kumho Tyre is Original Equipment partner of the BMW group. Next to the 1 Series, 2 Series and 3 Series, actually the BMW X3 and the Mini Countryman are fitted with Kumho ex factory.
