KOREA (SOUTH): Kumho announces creation of tire with low noise emission

The company said it has successfully reduced the noise that occurs when tires meet the surface of a road with use of sound-absorbent materials such as porous polyurethane foams.

It added that noise from the new tires is 8 % lower compared to its current premium tires. The company will start producing the newly developed tires from early next year.
