Hankook Tire Named Original Equipment for Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Hankook Tire Named OE for Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Hankook’s tires will be equipped with the “MO” label on the tire wall, which stands for “Mercedes Original.”

Global leading tire company Hankook Tire is equipping the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class for the first time, with three different tire types for summer, winter and all-season conditions. Hankook’s tires will be equipped with the “MO” label on the tire wall, which stands for “Mercedes Original.” Only tires with this seal of approval are approved as original equipment for a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. 

Mercedes Original tires must be perfectly matched to the respective vehicle model and have to fulfill up to 50 criteria to meet the strict quality requirements of the Mercedes-Benz Group for safety, precision and comfort.

“We are very proud to be the original equipment supplier for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class,” said Jeongho Park, executive vice president and director of OE Division at Hankook Tire. “The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is considered the absolute top of the luxury segment in the global automotive industry. We see this as confirmation that our products meet the highest requirements across different markets.”

While Hankook outfitted a previous Mercedes-Benz model, the premium car manufacturer has now included Hankook as original equipment manufacturer for a large number of different tire sizes and types following its approval for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. For the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Hankook supplies three different tire types for summer, winter and all-season in a range of different sizes.
