The Kumho's KH15 tyre features a non-directional tread pattern which gives excellent wet weather traction and reduces the risk of aquaplaning. Combining this with a silica tread compound that reduces fuel consumption and gives enhanced cornering and straight-line stability at all speeds the tyre has been designed to give excellent wet and dry handling without compromising on safety and comfort levels.
The load rating (represented by the numerical value) is related to the maximum weight that tyre can carry. So in this case 105 would refer to a load capacity of 925kg, with most passenger vehicle load indexes range from 62 to 126.
In all instances the tyres load index must meet or exceed the value displayed on the vehicles placard.
The speed category symbol, for example 'S', indicates the maximum speed at which the tyre can carry a load corresponding to its load index. So in this case, 'S' would refer to a maximum speed of 180km/hour.
