Hankook Tire has been selected as an original equipment (OE) supplier for the 2016 Lincoln MKX with its 20-inch Ultra High Performance All Season Ventus S1 noble.

The Ventus S1 noble supplied for the MKX, in size 245/50R20, was developed for drivers seeking a comfortable driving experience. An asymmetric four channel rib design provides efficient water evacuation while an advanced silica rubber compound offers impressive wet and dry handling, braking and lower rolling resistance along with higher durability for increased performance and control.

The new original equipment agreement marks the fourth OE fitment for Ford’s premium Lincoln brand following previous Hankook fitments for the MKT, MKZ and Navigator. Through this continued partnership, Hankook Tire has been able to position itself worldwide as a global tire brand with superior and cutting-edge tire technology.

Hankook Tire diversifies its premium OE portfolio through agreement with Lincoln MKX. Along with its full spectrum of OE supply agreements embracing form SUV to sedans, Hankook Tire continues to expand its premium OE portfolio.
