LinkedIn +

The 2016 Lincoln MKX is to be equipped with Hankook’s all-season Ventus S1 noble2 tires in size 245/50 R20. The tire’s asymmetric four-channel rib design provides efficient water evacuation while an advanced silica rubber compound offers improved wet and dry handling and braking, lower rolling resistance and higher durability for increased performance and control.

“The consistent and solid growth of Hankook Tire’s increasing presence in OE supply for premium brands such as Lincoln demonstrates the confidence in product quality and leading technologies of our products,” said Seung Hwa Suh, vice chairman and CEO, Hankook Tire.

“We are pleased with our most recent OE contract for the MKX and look forward to consolidating further partnership with the Lincoln brand going forward, a relationship that began in 2008 with Hankook Tire supplying OE products for Lincoln vehicles.”
