The Kinergy PT is Hankook’s Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, family sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles looking for a tire that combines low noise and a comfortable ride with long life. Designed for year-round use, the Kinergy PT delivers traction in dry, wet and slippery conditions, even in light snow.
The Kinergy PT utilizes an abrasion-resistant, carbon black compound for low rolling resistance and long life. The compound is molded into an asymmetric pattern featuring optimized block stiffness for handling and durability. The computer-designed profile helps to evenly distribute weight across the contact patch to further aid wear, and in addition to the high-stiffness center rib, improves braking performance. Wide, circumferential grooves work in conjunction with lateral notches to evacuate water from the footprint and resist hydroplaning. The aqua slant sipes create extra biting edges for traction in wet or snowy conditions.
Internal construction of the Kinergy PT features two wide, steel belts with a full-width nylon reinforcement for improved handling, durability and high-speed stability. Folded belt edge strips resist belt edge separation while aiding stability, and the strong, jointless bead wire enhances uniformity for a smoother ride.
