Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

I have now bought my 2nd set. First set is on a 2000 Boxster and I liked so much replaced my Mich PS3 on S4 with the Hankooks. Quiet & ride for a summer tire exceeds anything I expected. For the price unbeatable .   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Bought these to replace OEM Continentals. Huge, positive difference. Felt like I'd installed a new set of shock absorbers/struts. They smooth out bumps and potholes, sidewall roll on turns is definitely minimized, reducing oversteer. Significant reduction in noise. Deep channeling maintains confidence in the wet, only hydroplaned when going way too fast for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

I really like these tires. Living in Germany I get to test out the Y speed rating, but my little Audi will only go 142mph. Not enough engine to go any faster. At those speeds it handles very nicely and predictable. Wet traction is very good on the curves and hills on my way to work. I only drove in the snow once with these, not a good time, but they were not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

This is my second experience with summer performance tires. First was Bridgestone 050As. That was a great tire despite what some people would say. The Hankooks have been pretty good. Smooth ride, and responsive. Grip is not bad, but could be a little better. Have not been in hard rain to really judge wet traction or hydroplaning. BTW,I have four wheel steer....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

This tire is awesome, have them on my stage 2 wrx and love them. They are very quiet and comfortable. Dry traction is prime. Wet traction is even better! Never been able to make them slip or skip on pavement and they do pretty decent on other surfaces too especially when absorbing pothole shocks. The only complaint I have is they feel a little sloshy at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I'm 7500 miles into this set of tires. In addition to daily driving, I use the Evo to get to and from mountain trailheads in a timely manner. I do not track this car, but race karts frequently. I swapped from 255/40/17 RE-11 on 17x9 wheels to 235/45/17 DW's on 17x8's to reduce operating costs.I've been pleasantly surprised by the performance these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have these tires installed on my 450whp EVO X for the harsh wyoming winters. I have taken these tires into some pretty extreme snow storms and I have had no problems. Driving on ice/snow is just as easy as driving on dry pavement. While everyone is sliding threw stoplights and what not I have absolutely no problems. I drive very aggressively and I fly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Purchased these as a replacement for the Yokohama Advan A82A's that I had previously. Primary reason was price point and other good reviews. I am very impressed with the ride quality, they ride a teeny bit softer than other HP summer tires - but still offer incredible grip and cornering. Highway noise is not bad considering the tread pattern, and MPG is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Installed the Ventus on my Mustang GT as a summer performance tire. I garage the car for the winter. Great tire with excellent grip in all conditions except snow. Quiet, stable when cornering, great stopping power and grip at launch. Wearing very evenly with rotation every 7k miles or so. I have about 12k miles on them now and they appear as new with little...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I can write this review with zero miles on the tires because this is my third set. The Hankook's are a very good value, probably the best value to performance tire I've put on this car. And with 170k miles on my Mustang, I've put a lot of tires on this car. Unfortunately I bought this set a little before I needed them, because they were on close out. Which...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I have to admit that at first I underestimated these tires. I wasn't expecting much from them, but they turned out to be great tires and despite my hungry driving they held very well, even when wires got exposed. Stealership told me it was not safe to drive those tires since wires were exposed and I still went on 2k trip and made it home without any issues....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

OK for all you people who bought this tire for track or autocross, THIS IS NOT A TIRE DESIGNED FOR THAT SO YOUR REVIEW IS MUTE AND POINTLESS! Now on to a real review. This tire at first was noisey, however after about 200 miles its very very quiet. This is the most comfortable tire I have ever owned. Driving a sports car with very aggressive driving I can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

When first installed were a bit squirrely at Interstate speeds, disappeared in a few hundred miles. In very cold weather and after sitting for days, need a short distance to warm up and smooth out. Very solid ride and stick really well. Difficult to cite any harshness directly attributable to the tires and not characteristic of the car. These are great tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

This is a long lasting tire that performs well in varied conditions. In truth, I probably did not exploit its potential very often except on occasional tight on-ramps where grip and stability matter the most. I did notice that the shoulders wore out first, long before the centre of the tread and I attribute this to driving style. The Hankook Ventus V12 Evo...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

I had this tire's predecessor on my 05' Evo MR and currently on my Eclipse GSX and on those two vehicles, these tires have performed very well! This new iteration performs very well as well on my BMW. They handle so well. But my other two cars are not what I would call quiet riding cars. So tire noise was not very noticeable. But on my BMW 335Xi M-Pkg., the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Yes, yes, yes! Thats all that needs to be said, but I'll explain my love for these tires. I've driven 30,000 miles on the PSS in my 535i and I absolutely love them! I purchased a 2007 335i a few weeks ago and its sitting on Hankook Ventus V12 Evo's, which don't even compare.Due to the sport package on each car the tires can't be rotated. My first set of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

These Hankook Ventus K110 tires are great. In comparison to the ROCK HARD Goodyears that came on my Corvette when new, there is no comparison as the Hankooks are far superior.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Previously ran Cooper CS4 Touring on my Mazda, these are almost as comfortable and quiet as those tires but with a noticeable upgrade in the handling department, both dry and wet. Have not been able to max out the car/tire combos capabilities, but feel confident to push them hard in daily driving.Compared to OEM Michelin MXM4, sidewall is softer on the...  Read More
