The Hankook Tyre Corporation of South Korea launched their new Laufenn Tyre brand last year as a product offering for the hitherto ignored quality mid tyre market; the cheap Chinese Tyre end of the market was amazingly crowded and the prestige tyre brand category was well catered for too. But no tyre company was catering for the new breed of smart, ecologically conscious, urban dwellers seeking an uncomplicated and minimalistic lifestyle.
This smart urban set desires compliant tyres meeting their values but also capable of real performance. An excellent example being the new Laufenn LC01 X Fit AT SUV tyre which melds sophisticated urban dwellers expectations with the realities of tyres needed off road in some very demanding situations. We have been highly encouraged by customer feedback testifying to the Laufenn LC01’s on and off road competence. Initial reports confirm that the LC01 is a high mileage tyre with exemplary on and off road attributes.
The new Laufenn LC01 uses clever jointless bead wire technology for improved bead uniformity for practical benefits like great durability and stability. Its rugged design resists external damage and its advanced design ensures driving enjoyment in every season.
Very soon I will be fitting a set of Laufenn Lc01’s to my Ford Ranger; the problem here being that its current set of HankookRF10’s refuse to wear out even after 125,000 kms! I have been delighted by the performance of my Ranger’s RF10’s but have had them so long that they have become boring; I am going to give them to Pete so he can run them on his Ford till they are worn out. Granted that my daily country drive is dramatically different to Pete’s daily Rothesay to Browns Bay Trek, but I am guessing they will last for ages driving around the Bays too!
Avaliable now from Megatyre in 11 sizes over 4 and 10 ply ratings for 15, 16 and 17 inch rims.
