Hankook Tire has announced its partnership with BMW as an original equipment tire supplier for the new BMW 1 Series. The company claims to be the seventh-largest and one of the fastest growing tire makers in world.
The new 1 Series will be fitted with Hankook’s ultra-high performance Ventus Prime tire, which has already been successfully used as original equipment on BMW’s sister brand, Mini.
The new OE fitment adds to the growing number of car-maker contracts that Hankook has picked up from leading manufactures. These include vehicles such as the Lincoln MKT, Ford F-150 and Explorer, Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, Volkswagen Passat, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Opitma and more.
