Kumho is guaranteeing that its Roadventure KL51 range will last at least 80 000kilometres, or your money back on the lost kilometres.
According to Kumho Tyre Australia’s national marketing and training manager, David Basha, the mileage guarantee provides customers with the confidence that Kumho is the best engineered and most durable tyre for their SUV.
“To promise 80 000 kilometres from tyres is a big claim but Kumho is so confident in the Roadventure KL51 we have done just that,” said David Basha.
“Kumho is committed to providing the most durable tyres to the market and with the rapidly growing SUV market Kumho is delivering increased peace of mind to a increasing number of tyre customers.
“If a Roadventure KL51 does not meet the guaranteed mileage the customer will be refunded on the difference on a pro-rata basis.
“That is to say if 95 per cent of the guaranteed distance is achieved, five per cent of the original purchase price will be refunded.”
To be eligible for the Kumho mileage guarantee, customers fill out a guarantee card in store and retain their original receipt along with the ‘tyre service card.’
Then it’s as simple as getting a tyre health check every 10 000km where your local Kumho dealer will inspect the tyre, check pressures, rotate the tyres and conduct a wheel alignment as needed to ensure the tyres wear evenly and fill in the service card.
“All motorists should inspect their tyres on a regular basis to get the optimum life from the tyre as well as rotating tyres so even wear is achieved,” explained Mr Basha.
“Not only does proper tyre maintenance extend the life of the tyre, but it can also give savings at the petrol pump.”
