Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Although the car is a 2015, I just took delivery 2 weeks ago. Got a fantastic deal. These tires are OE. I figured I'd keep track on here from the onset. Since I've never driven on this brand before, I was predicting I might swap them immediately after delivery for the same Yokohama Advan Sport A/S' I put on our other car and LOVE them. So far, they ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Making the switch from RFT to conventional tires save me money and I personally didn't like the ride or noise quality of the run flats. I've only had these on for less than 1k miles, but so far, it met my expectations. Steering response is great, superb traction in both dry and wet conditions. The ride is a lot softer and quieter. These tires absorb road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Kinergy GT

Pretty good in dry conditions. Awful and essentially unsafe in wet conditions. On hard breaking on wet road you might as well be stopping on ice.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

My 2002 911 Carrera C2 does spirited daily driver duty as well as a few PCA autocross events each year. I have the factory 18 wheel option. These tires replaced the Hankook Ventus K112 that lasted 13,137 in similar use. After the fifth run in yesterday's autocross I noticed a thin white line of tire cord exposed on the Contis rear driver's side tire at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Bought this tire to replace my summer tires. Thought this would be a better all-round option, given the claim that it is as good as a max performance summer tire. The tire has felt quite good in normal driving, and handled well in several sudden and intense downpours that we often get in Colorado. However, the tires are not even close in terms of cornering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

This is the 2nd set of Hankook tires I've installed on my '98 Corvette. I'm 62 years old and drive the car normally. No burnouts or hard aggressive driving. I do some spirited acceleration once in awhile after shifting into 2nd gear of the manual transmission and going into 3rd. I rated the tires as 8 in most categories and 5 in tread wear. These are summer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

This set of tires replaced #4 Hankook Ventus Noble S2 A/S High Performance tires which wore bad and wore out around 20k miles of easy to moderate driving. The BFGoodrich tires have better cornering & dry grip. Better braking and acceleration then the Hankooks. The BFs also performan better in not Hydroplaning and does great in cornering & wet conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Mounted these on my 2008 Infiniti FX35 AWD a couple weeks back now and am genuinely surprised by the difference in ride. I'm a nail magnet and have lost 7 tires in 8 years. I've gone through several brands and most recently had Hankooks. I thought those were good tires until I used these Michelin's. The ride now is 100% smoother with better grip and I feel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

So I replaced my Hankook 16 inch Run Flats that came standard on the car when I bought it in 2014 with these Goodyear All Seasons. What a huge difference these All Seasons are compared to the Run Flats. I will never buy another set of Run Flats again (I guess, other than if they come standard on a new Mini and I have no other option). The Run Flats have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Best tire I have ever had on this car. I am in a car club here in Va. We go on long rides through the mountains , high speed curves , never had any corning problems . These tires are maid for performance cars not front wheel drive granny cars. Getting ready to buy another set. Great tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

So far after a new 4-tire purchase and a 400 mile trip in hot weather, there and back, and they have been great in a heavy minivan. Nice and quiet. I drove up to 80 mph in a sto-n-go grand caravan with 3 adults one child and cargo, loaded up. Tires are great so far.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro AT-M

I like almost everything about this tire. Traction, steering feel and handling are very good. Ride is very good, really soaks up surface roughness. Snow & ice performance is reasonable for an A/T but will not compare with a top snow tire. Off road traction is generally excellent. Unfortunately, with age tire has got noisy in 25-45mph range, but at highway...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I have found my tire! Absolutely adore these. I was a little iffy, because I felt the price was low for something with such tremendous reviews all over the place. But WOW, what great tires. I've tried Goodyear Eagle RS-As and RS-A2s, Firestone Firehawks, Hankook Ventus V12s and a couple of others on these big ol' Chargers and the G-Force Sport Comp-2s are so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Just passed 60k. Still have almost half tire life. I was originally concerned about the tire only 8/32 but the tires have held up. These tires do everything well but shine brightest in heavy rain with standing water. Have no complaints. The Premier's replaced Hankook's far superior ride, handling, tracking, cornering and stopping. MPG originally decreased...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S

We use these tires for autocross only with only a few commuter miles. We co-drive a 1999 Mazda Miata modified for prepared for competition with 225/45/15 Rival S tires mounted on 15 x 9 wheels. We have 111 competition runs on these tires now, with very little tread remaining on the inside and outside shoulders of the tires. We run a lot of negative camber...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Ordered from Tire Rack and shipped to dealer for install,05 driver family car, removed Hankook Ventus with 20K miles. That was enough for me ,noisy and they liked to break loose in any amount of Chicago snow and would lift up in the rain, this on an AWD vehicle.I bought DWS 06 because of the TIRE RACK review, the Infiniti dealer service managers...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Bought these due to my mileage at the time being a little on the high side. These tires are very good...except for an Evo. I feel I have lost the feel of the car and it's been replaced by 'comfort'. Yuck. I feel like I'm guiding the car rather than driving it. I wouldn't brand the tire as an outright performance tire either...its more suited to a luxury...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H431

My experience with these tires isn't as bad as most reviews here, but definitely not what I would consider a pleasant one. Tires were OEM on my Kia Optima SXL (2.0L Turbo). I commute approximately 70 miles each day on highway speeds. Some stop-and-go with traffic. In straight-line dry acceleration/deceleration they're adequate. I really don't push the car in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H725

These tires are a new brand and driving experience for me. I always have purchased tires that were all-season and rated very good for many driving situations. The Hankook have proven to be right up there with any top rated brand and I am quite happy with them for the short time I've driven on them. I would recommend them to anyone that wants a very good tire...  Read More
