Kumho develops low-noise tires  [ Korea ]

Kumho Tire has developed a low-noise tire. The company was able to reduce resonant noise significantly by applying porous polyurethane foam to the tire tread. Kumho became the first Korean company to develop such technology. The new tire offers an additional noise reduction effect of approximately 8 percent compared with Kumho's existing premium tires.
