Kumho tyres remain the most popular tyres used in the Formula Three racing and Ground Touring industries. The tyres are renowned for boasting some of the most advanced tyre technology around and have helped many professional racing drivers cross the checkered finish line as champions. It is no wonder then that the Kumho Tire Company is regarded as one of the top 10 tyre manufacturers in the world.
Established in South Korea in 1960 to produce high-quality tyres, the Kumho Tire Company was originally called Samyang Tire until it changed its name in the mid-eighties. The company produced its first tyres in 1961 and soon went on to create the first ever passenger car tyre made in Korea. After that, it wasn’t long until the organisation started exporting its tyres to East Asia and, eventually, Western countries such as the USA, Canada, the UK, Germany and Spain.
Today, the Kumho Tire Company has become a global corporation. Its products are found in almost every major county and are used in some of the biggest motorsports events, including the Formula Three Euro Series, the Korea Super Grand Prix and the Masters of Formula Three. Both drivers and professional racers everywhere are choosing Kumho tyres for their high-performance, durability and cutting-edge safety features.
