Kumho I'Zen KW27


Winter tire for safe transit on snow; dry and wet road, on-road, as well as, off-road. It enables smooth, quiet driving. The I'ZEN KW27 will always react accurately to the movements of your steering wheel. The directional thread pattern, large central rib, and plethora of slits, guarantee stable traction in any weather, including, but not limited to, deep snow, ice and slush. The arrangement of the blocks prevents any tread blockage. Additionally, grooves in the tire provide additional grip, increasing control on slippery surfaces and preventing block displacement. This increases the rigidity of of the protector.

  • Maximum traction performance through 3-dimensional sipes
  • Maximum resistibility in sliding in horizontal direction with an application of angled groove in the inside part
  • Improved cornering and handing performance by increasing stiffness in the shoulder through T-bars
