Hankook Tyre announced it was supplying its highway all-season Dynapro HT tyres in sizes P265/70R16T and P265/60R18T, and aggressive all-terrain Dynapro AT-M in size P265/75R16T for the Nissan Frontier.
“Hankook Tyre is the exclusive original equipment provider across the main size ranges for the Frontier, further expanding its diverse original equipment (OE) supply portfolio,” the supplier said in a statement.
Hankook said it was growing presence in the light truck radial (LTR) business, “especially in North America where demand for pickup trucks is relatively high”.
By successfully supplying an expanded size range for the mid-size pickup truck, it had been able to further strengthen its partnership with Nissan as well as raise its brand presence in the North American pickup truck OE market. US-built Frontiers are sold in North America and Mexico.
Hankook also supplies tyres for Nissan’s Altima, NV200, Paladin, Qashqai, and Rogue.
“Hankook Tyre will continue to raise its standing in the OE business by maintaining its heavy investment in R&D in order to meet the high standards of leading global automakers,” the supplier added.
