Rancho Cucamonga, California – Kumho Tire has launched Kumho Tire Drive, a new free racing game for video game and auto enthusiasts. The application works on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch and iPad products.

The game lets participants become “Kumho-sponsored” drivers and race for points and worldwide recognition. Through the game’s multiple levels, racers can earn points by successfully completing each track. The “garage” feature lets racers use their accumulated points to upgrade from an entry-level import tuner, to a classic muscle car, to an exotic dream car. The points can also be used for vehicle modifications.

The game also includes a tire selector option where racers can choose the appropriate Kumho tires to match the track surface and weather conditions.

The full version can be downloaded for free from the Apple store beginning in the first week of January 2011. It will be available shortly afterwards for all phones on the Android OS system.
