The Kinforest’s Ultra High Performance Summer tire is developed for sports car, sports coupe and performance sedan driving enthusiasts. Designed to combine sleek styling and impressive handling, the Kinforest KF550 delivers head-turning performance in warm, dry and wet conditions, however it is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
Kinforest KF550 tires feature Kinforest’s specially formulated silica tread compound to enhance traction. The compound is molded into a directional tread design featuring broad shoulder blocks and three notched central ribs to promote responsive handling and stable cornering. Wide circumferential tread channels enhance hydroplaning resistance and wet traction.
The tyre’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by Kinforest’s Jointless Band (JLB) spirally wound polyamide cord cap ply to stabilize the tread area for enhanced treadwear, handling and high-speed capability. A polyester cord body enhances ride quality while Max Flange Shields adjacent to the beads help resist rim damage due to accidental curbing.
