A winter tire designed to perform at low temperatures
The Kumho IZEN KW23 is a winter performance tire designed for compact cars and sedans. This tire was developed specifically for our harsh winters and so is optimized to perform well at low-temperature. While providing durability and ride comfort, the Kumho KW23 offers a solid grip in the snow and good traction on ice. This winter tire is an ideal choice to face the worst winter conditions.
Last generation compound for great traction and durability
Kumho I'ZEN KW-23 features the new generation silica compound, specifically developed for traction on cold and slippery surfaces, which offers excellent performances in terms of rolling resistance for increased tread durability.
High performance tread
The Kumho KW23 I'ZEN’s directional profile maximizes water and snow drainage, providing excellent resistance to aquaplaning and precise handling on wet and dry roads.
The optimal surface contact of the tread with the road, as well as the Kumho KW23 I'ZEN rigid shoulder system contribute to improve grip on snow and ice.
Furthermore, the KW23 has wide and deep 3D sipes which increase traction on snowy and icy roads. It also sports zigzag ribs allowing more uniform tire wear, better stability and exemplary handling.
The winter Kumho KW23 I'ZEN is consistent with Quebec's Bill 42.
