Kumho 15-Series Tyre

These tyres are definitely suited for the kind of pimped out rides that are making its debut at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week. Kumho has just unveiled what they claim is the world’s first 15-series profile tyre for 22 inch alloy wheels.

The Kumho ECSTA SPT KU31 comes in a 385/15ZR22 size. Kumho says it has used computer simulation technology to optimise the ultra low profile sidewall structure in order to prevent the formation of standing waves or ripples.

These problems can occur due to heat build-up at high speeds. Kumho also says the tyres have semi-run flat capability, though they did not go into detail what exactly semi-run flat means.
