Kumho Tire Co., Inc. is a South Korean tire company. Headquartered in Gwangju, South Korea, it was a subsidiary of the Kumho Asiana Group until 2018, after which the company became a part of Chinese tire manufacturer Doublestar. 

Originally known as Samyang Tire, Kuhmo Tire is a South Korean tire manufacturer that maintains a market world wide. It is the second largest tire manufacturer in South Korea by sales and the seventh largest Korean company in general. It runs three tire manufacturing plants in South Korea, three in China, one in Vietnam and one in the United States. It also runs multiple R&D centers around the world. Kumho means Bright Lake in Korean.

Kumho Tire was started as an offshoot of a taxi and bus service in 1960 and grew quickly as the Korean economy did. In 1963 Kumho Tire produced the first compact passenger tire which was the first passenger tire manufactured in the South Korea. In 1964 it began developing tubes. Beginning from 1966 they managed to gain US Department of Transport marks for some tire that made them legal for export to the United States. In 1977 the subsidiary Kumho Tyres was created and this began their expansion in the UK market.

In 2008 Kumho tire founded Kumho Tire Georgia, Inc. This was created to develop a tire manufacturing plant in the United States and originally planned to begin production of tires in 2009. Due to the global economic downturn these plans were put on hold and it was only in 2015 that there was again movement to create a United States based tire plant. This plant would be opened in 2016 at the cost of 450 million dollars in construction. This plant is capable of producing 4 million tires a year.
