Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Excellent summer tire. I bought these tires to replace the runflats that come with the Mini. Excellent tires for summer driving. However, don't try them in the snow - you get virtually no traction.   Read More

Tread Design Types and How They Differ

Not every tire is made the same, nor do they look the same. Tread designs help play a key role in traction ability, road noise and treadwear. Take a look at available tread designs and how they compare against one another. Symmetric A symmetric tread design is the most common and features continuous ribs or independent tread blocks across the entire tread face...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Have 20k on these tires and quite a bit of life remaining. Still very comfortable and handles great. Best tires I have ever had. Beats any performance A/S iv'e had before; P-zero, Exalto, Avid-envigor, which are all great too. Will get these for all my cars to come. Recommended these to my friend with an Evo. He loves them too.   Read More

Best Replacement Tires for the Run-Flats on C6 Corvettes

Many Corvette owners ask about switching to non-run-flat tires for multiple reasons, including cost, selection and ride quality. For standard C6 sizes, there are a number of excellent non-run-flat options to choose from with the 245/40R18 size in the front and 285/35R19 in the rear.   The best performance tires in terms of handling and traction are the Micheli...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Well this is a pretty crappy tire. It doesn't accel in any category that I can tell. The wet traction (where it's supposed to shine) is not all that good. Neither is the dry. The noise is ---awful now that they are about 60% worn down.....all in all it's not really any good.I'll go back to a Fuzion ZRi or BFG G-Force Sport before this again. The ONLY...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I purchased these tires instead of Michelin as the mich are so darn expensive. I was immediately impressed with the feel, grip and response from these v12's. I've never felt more planted in this car. For the most part the porsche is not know for a cushy ride, and I don't expect one with 18's. these babies have held up extremely well and the performance has...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I crashed my S2000 in the rain due to bad tires, so I bought these for my repaired S2K because I heard that A) they came on a lot of new super cars, B) Michelin makes tires for space shuttles!, and C) the tires are less expensive than the value I put on my life. I no longer drive extremely fast in the rain, so I can't say for sure here. For warm weather,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Hankook's Ventus V12 Evos are very good performance tires and for the price, they're excellent. I purchased a set for my awd Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10 and drive them exuberantly on tarmac, gravel and snow (just not on actual ice) and they're such good tires, I'm buying another set. Yes, there are tires that will last longer, but they're not performance...  Read More

I purchased these tires about 2 years ago with a tire and wheel package for my wrx. these tires are awesome!!!!! They handle perfectly when its dry outside(does take a little time to heat them up) whether its a straightline or the corners my wrx is built for. I track my wrx a few times a year and they hold up well for the price. I have rotated every 3000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

Took it out on a track day on Laguna Seca over the weekend. Steering response is fairly good. Adequate grip level for my stock speed3 on track. Fairly predictable towards the limit of adhesion, but the tires dont really squeal that much in terms of giving you warning. Ride quality is good, not as harsh as the OEM Dunlop SP2020, but not as soft as the Hankook...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Just had service done to my car and was told that the inside of my current Hankook Ventus rear tires are worn to the belts after 16K miles. Absolutely not surprised considering the low tread rating and the excessive camber of the BMW's sport suspension setup. Front tires still have enough life left to probably last as long as the 2 new rears....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

This tire is very good except for two (2) shortcomings. I am comparing these Hankook tires to the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires that I previously had on this Porsche. First, the sidewalls are not near as rigid as the Michelins; they have a wallowing feel under hard cornering. Second, the tread life is not very good; I only got 13,000 miles out of them. I am...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3

Ive used these tires on my M3 for the past year. Lots of spirited driving, 2 autocross schools, one where it was dual driven (about 100 runs just that day.) 6 autoX events where I won class 3 times.I did have one event that was very odd. Everyone running these tires that day (about 6 of us) all had the same issue with no grip what so ever. It was sunny and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I waited to do a review until I tried them in snow. I have a very capable awd car, but the ability to stop is regardless of the drive-train. These tires are fantastic and perform excellent in rain and light snow. The traction dry is also very very good. I replaced the OEM tires on my EVO immediately after buying the car because they have a very low...  Read More

I just put these Hankook tires on my car to replace the original Goodyear run flats that it came with from factory, after only 19,000 miles. As soon as I drove away from installation facility I could feel the advantage of these Hankooks. Quieter,smoother ride, traction are just some of the most notable assets. I took the car on a 350 mile trip the day after...  Read More
